CONDITION: In overall good condition. When examined out of the frame the sheet is not laid down. There is toning and discoloration throughout the sheet likely due to light exposure. The image itself looks clean except for a minor abrasion in the bottom of the image in the dress of the figure directly above the signature. Some staining to the sheet in the margins with tape residue verso along the edges of the paper. There is a tear in the sheet along the left edge creasing to the paper due to being handled over time.
