The sheet is toned. The colors are faded. Along the extreme edges of the image, the colors are more bold, likely due to a previous framing. The sheet is affixed to a black paper board backing; it has come loose in the lower right quadrant of the work. There is a small notch in the lower right corner of the margin. In the left lower center margin there are numerical inscriptions in pencil. There is a series of creases that run along the lower margin. Along the verso of the black backing there are several areas along the margins with losses to the top layer of paper. There are two large areas along the right and left sides with previous framing tape affixed. There is an area along the upper margin with residual adhesive from previous framing tape. Some light wear to the verso. The verso of the print could not be inspected due to the nature of the matting.
