Technique and condition
A watercolour with detail in gouache on blue wove paper. Slight cockling of the sheet due to the attachment along all four edges to the window mount opening is apparent; creases to the upper corners have resulted in minor abrasion of the paper surface on the recto.
On acquisition the woodpulp mount and residual adhesive were removed and the work was inlaid and mounted onto white museum board.
