Additional Notes & Condition Report

Taped to mat at the top verso corners. Surface dirt. Some corners with damage (cracks, tears, creases). 2 1/2 inch tear at the upper right center at edge. Tears have paper support on the verso. Few small lines of craquelure. There is an attached section at the top left corner which matches the forms at the bottom center right.
