The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly deeper and richer in the original.
This work is in very good and original condition. The sheet is attached verso to the backing board in numerous places. All four edges of the sheet are deckled and the sheet undulates slightly. All collaged elements are stable. Close inspection reveals a fine pattern of craquelure to the latex. Very close inspection reveals a tiny tear and a small spot of skinning towards the upper right corner tip and three tiny spots of media that have adhered to the latex.
