THIS LOT IS FRAMED, BUT CAN BE SHIPPED UNFRAMED. Color on the framed image is off.
Good condition and color, save for old mat line in margins. It was decided not to clean the mat line because the color is so vibrient and beautiful. Cleaning would weaken the color and the mat line can be matted out so it is not visiable. One of the most beautiful impression of this important print we have seen.
