Technique and condition

The image is painted in watercolour with detail in gouache and pencil drawing on off-white, wove paper. It has suffered some discolouration from its window mount and from being in proximity of other woodpulp mounts.

On acquisition the work was removed from its mount prior to being pressed, inlaid and mounted onto white museum board.
