The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the paper tone tends more towards sand and there is more texture in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged to the backing mount in two places on the upper edge. The horizontal and right edges are slightly deckled. All collaged elements are stable and securely adhered. All other surface irregularities are in keeping with the artist's choice of media.
