The colours in the catalogue are fairly accurate, although the pink tones are deeper and richer in the original and the illustration fails to fully convey the neon qualities of the work.
This work is in very good condition. Very close inspection reveals some very faint and superficial rub marks and media accretions in isolated places throughout and a tiny spot of wear to the extreme lower left corner tip. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra-violet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
