A few scattered stray pigment marks typical of Expressionist works on paper techniques. The overall hue of the paper has mellowed over the decades with a few insignificant tan to brown spots generally towards the edges that may be moderate foxing rather than pigment.
Frame patina is original, mellowed and handsome but with scattered wear to both front and side edges - samples of frame surface wear in pics.
