Additional Notes & Condition Report

(i) Work appears to have been incised intentionally by the artist. The work is laid to larger backing sheet, and is puckering in areas where the glue has loosened.
(ii) Sheet is lifting from its backing. A 3/4 inch diagonal crease at upper left corner, may possibly be original to the work. Work is laid to a larger backing sheet.
(iii) Sheet has come unglued from larger backing sheet. The work is comprised of two joined magazine pages, with the larger of the two sheets lifting from its card support. A line where pigment has cracked runs vertically at upper left, approximately 2 1/2 inches.
