Colours: Colours: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the paper tends more towards cream in the original.
Condition: This work is in good condition. Executed on cream wove paper. There is significant creasing to the top left hand and bottom right corners and along the left edge. There is a further horizontal crease approximately 8cm. long towards the centre of the right extreme edge. There are tiny tears all along the extreme bottom edge and a few nicks in places along the top extreme edge. There are faint handling marks in places throughout the sheet, most notably towards the bottom right corner, probably inherent to the artist's choice of medium.
