Condition

Colours: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate. Condition: This work is in very good condition. There is a diagonal crease approximately 5cm. long in the top right hand corner. There are several hairline scratches in places in the background, notably in the top right hand quadrant. There are a few tiny scratches on the figure's nose and a few further scattered scratches in the top left corner. There are patches of imperfections in the background towards the top half of the composition, probably inherent to the artist's working process. There is a light layer of dust beneath the glass.
