The artist's mount is fixed to the mat at the upper corners and there is a small tear to the center of the upper edge; There is some prominent creasing to the sheet which appears to be consistent with the artist's mounting process and there is a faint water-mark towards the upper edge; Otherwise, apart from some light time-staining, this work is in very good condition
