Colours: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is much brighter and more vibrant in the original, with the paper tending more towards cream in all three parts.
Condition: All three works are in very good condition. Each is securely hinged to the backing board in several places on the reverse. There is slight undulation to each sheet and slight discolouration in places. All have slightly uneven edges.
