    Condition Report*: The work is hinged to the mat in two spots (upper left and right corners) along the upper reverse edge. There appears to be old glue and mat remnants along the extreme edges of the paper, not visible when framed. There appears to be mat burn along the edges of the image. The paper appears toned. There appears to be no evidence of rips, holes or repairs.
