Additional Notes & Condition Report

Hinged at upper left and upper right corners, hinged at lower left and lower right, approximately 1/2 inch up from lower edge. Two fine creases running horizontally at a slight angle across the upper center of the work, with an associated 1/4 inch line of loss in white pigment at center, and two associated areas of paint separation in brown pigment at center left. Given the fragility of the onion skin-like paper, it is uncertain if these issues are original to the work. Sheet is uneven.
