Colours: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly softer in the original.
Condition: This work is in good condition. There is wear to all four corner tips. There are two small white media accretions; one at the extreme top edge towards the left corner and one towards the centre of the extreme bottom edge. There are patches of discolouration throughout the composition and small imperfections, probably inherent to the artist's choice of medium.
