Colours: The colours are fairly accurate in the catalogue illustration, although the overall paper tone tends more towards yellow cream in the original.
Condition: This work is in good condition. Hinged to the mount along the top edge, the sheet undulates throughout. There are artist's pinholes in the top left and right hand corners. There is a minute water mark towards the left centre of the extreme top edge. There are several light creases along the right edge and a further crease towards the top of the upper right hand quadrant. There are four extremely small indentations to the sheet directly above the centre of the composition. The colour of the ink appears to have faded since the time of production.
