Image Size: 14 3/4 x 11 in. (37.5 x 27.9cm)

The framed and matted sheet in generally fair to good overall condition, with three tape pieces at top edge affixed to front of sheet and taped to matting. The sheet displays some uneven cockling - does not lie perfectly flat - and has pale mat burn lines outside the image and outside of the pencil signature. Just within outer right edge of sheet at upper center there are some (removable in our opinion) tiny bits of extraneous paper. The bottom outer right edge of sheet has a slight fold (covered over by the overmat when framed). There are some scattered handling creases and paper has a watermark on verso.
Frame: 21 x 16 3/4 x 1 in.
