Condition Report: Four examined out of the frame as follows:

[Nude with book]
Japanese paper seems to be laid over a sheet of wove on front and back. On the verso of the present example, the Japanese deckle ends about a 1/2-inch above the bottom sheet edge exposing the wove paper beneath. With pale time staining, a few soft handling creases. A 1/2 inch diagnoal crease across the lower right margin corner, a vertical 1-in. soft vertical crease at the extreme lower left sheet corner. A diagonal 1-inch verical crease adjacent to the 'D' of the signature which extends upwards from the sheet edge, possibly inherent to paper and/or process. With two pinprick foxmarks in the image at right, other occasional pinprick foxmarks seen in the margins.

[Nude with Red Rose & Other tiny Flowers]
With pale staining along the uppermost 1/4-sheet edge, occasional pinprick foxing in the margins, ie at the bottom of the 'D'. The bottom 1/4-in. of the sheet edge shows the wove underneath the Japanese paper. A 1/8-inch pressure mark in the center of the lower left central margin.

[Nude with Blue, Round Orb at lower right]
With time staining, pale old tape/glue stains showing through occasionall, all along th eupper 1/4 in of the upper sheet edge, an occasional pinprick foxmark in the margins, pale time staining along the bottom sheet edge.

[Nude with Long Hair, Flower between her feet]
With time staining, pale old tape/glue stains showing through occasionall, all along the upper 1/4 in of the upper sheet edge, scattered minor pinprick foxmarks througout, a 1-mm. darker foxmark in the upper center margin (more visible than others), a brown pinprick foxmark below left of this area, a pinprick foxmark in the blue of image at upper left, the Japanese paper peeling very slightly in an approx. 1-in. area at the lower left side of the vertical left margin edge, the lower right sheet corner gently creased.
