The print is in generally good condition. There are no rips or restorations. When inspected under a UV light there were no issues. The sheet is slightly toned. There is a crease running horizontally along the center where it appears the print was possibly folded. There is some light soiling along the margins. Some undulation to the sheet. The print is hinged to the mat in six places; along all four corners and along the middle of the right and left margins. Due to the way the sheet is hinged, the verso has not been inspected. The print is floated in the frame. There is some wear to the mat, some threads are loose along the extreme margins. There is an area of possible moisture on the bottom right hand corner of the mat that does not affect the print. The artwork is framed; some light wear to the frame; frame behind glass.
