The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the sheet is whiter and the blacks are crisper in the original.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged intermittently along the edges. There is an artist pinhole in each corner. The sheet undulates slightly and there is evidence of handling along the edges and at the corners, including regularly spaced partial tears at the lower left edge, all of which appear inherent to the artist's working method and intent. Under close inspection, a pinpoint yellow spot accretion just left of center is visible.
