the group is overall in good condition: the print that shows Picasso and four other individuals observing a sculpture has five faint scratches varying in length: one begins lower left, one begins at the center left edge, one is below Picasso's knee, one is at the bottom center edge and one is to the upper center left; the print that shows a woman wearing a necklace while Picasso and three other figures observe has two faint impressions to the bottom of Picasso's shirt and to the paper on the table
