Generally fair overall condition, the framed and matted sheet has brown tape pieces along each outer edge on verso affixed to mat. There are pale brown horizontal lines on verso of sheet that do not appear on the image itself. These lines on the verso of sheet are from a piece of cardboard used in the framing of the print. As the sheet is taped on the verso to the mat, we have not removed the sheet from the mat. The sheet itself has pale light staining and there are some localized foxing specks/spots and some pale brown discoloration at upper center left in part of landscape, as seen in catalogue and online photographs. Otherwise the print is in generally good condition.
