The colour in the printed catalogue is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly warmer in the original.
This work is in very good condition. All collaged elements are stable. There is evidence of handling throughout, which is likely to be original and in keeping with the artist's working process. Extremely close inspection reveals some very fasint and unobtrusive discolouration to the extreme horizontal edges.
