Technique and condition

A double-sided pastel and chalk drawing on a medium-weight, blue wove paper. The drawing is generally in good condition with surface dirt and general all over discolouration from exposure to light. The work has been hinged around its edges into a double window mount.

On acquisition the drawing was removed from its window mount, dry-cleaned to reduce surface dirt and then pressed. It was then inlaid and mounted on white museum board.
