The colors are bold and bright. There are no visible rips, tears, major creases, or restorations when inspected under UV light. Some unevenness to the deckled edges, original to the artist production; there is one minute tear along the lower right edge which may be inherent to the deckled edges, though it is difficult to determine. This spot measures 1/4 inch in length. There is undulation to the sheet throughout. The artwork is floated in the frame; not inspected out of frame. Light wear to the frame throughout; framed under plexiglass.
