Colour: The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the overall paper tonality is slightly lighter and brighter in the original.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. The sheet is mounted verso to the canvas support in numerous places and undulates slightly. Very close inspection reveals some faint creases and some tiny media accretions in isolated places throughout. Extremely close inspection reveals a few minute specks of foxing towards the centre right of the lower edge of the horizontal panel.
