Works are after the originals and are later reprints. Prints laid down on board and with strongly adhered mats (adhesive likely over some of the sheet). In conducting a firsthand condition report, we did not remove the mats as they were tightly clinging and did not want to compromise the integrity of the prints. Colors rich and saturated--no signs of fading, toning or foxing to sheets. No signs of rips, tears or holes (however, there could be some under mats of which we are unaware).
