Technique and condition
An ink and brush sketch on blue wove paper. The work is in good condition. Slight discolouration is visible where the window mount opening has exposed the work to atmospheric conditions and the media is burning through the support.
On acquisition the remains of brown paper tape hinges were removed. Residual adhesive on the verso was removed and the work pressed prior to being inlaid and mounted onto white museum board.
