Notes :
This work is in very good condition overall. There is a slight undulation to the sheet, which is inherent to the artist's working method.There are scattered graphite smudges and finger prints, which appear to be by the artist's hand and inherent to the artist's working method. The edges of the sheet are slightly lighter than the color of the paper due to a previous matte. There is some very light and scattered pinpoint spots of foxing. The artist?s inscription on the reverse is faintly visible through the front of the sheet. The sheet is hinged verso to the matte, intermittently along the top edge. Framed under Plexiglas
