Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the green tends more towards forest green in the original.
Condition: This work is in good condition. Executed on cream laid paper, the work is laid down on the backing board. There is discolouration to the top, bottom and right edges. There is a minute tear at the extreme left edge approximately 3cm. below the top left corner. There are tiny spots of foxing scattered throughout, notably in the top right corner. There are four very shallow vertical indentations notably in the top right quadrant, probably inherent to the artist's working process.
