The work is "floating" in its frame. The sheet measures 37 x 30 inches. The very edges have minute creases, and their is subtle soiling to each of the corners. The right margin has a crease in it, well away from the image, about 1 1/2 inches long. Although it has not been removed from its frame, there are no additional visible issues to report.
