Represented in numerous private collections.
Condition: Generally good, however, there is a light water stain in the left side margin. The drawing is secured to a black matting by masking tape fixed around the outer edges. I have not tried to remove the tape, and will therefore ship as is. Once properly framed, this drawing is sure to be a focal point of any quality collection.
This item is sold unframed.
