Private Collection (purchased from the above in 1979).
The sheet gently rippled, the metallic inks offsetting slightly into the uninked areas around them, the lower half of the salmon pink (left-most strip) with mottled shallow cracking (apparently stable with no losses). This pattern of cracking follows a bit into the moss-green color adjacent. Also in the moss green area is a more shallow, barely apparent cracking of the uppermost layer. Again without any ink loss. With two long lines of stray ink verso. Otherwise, overall in very good, original condition.
