Condition

Colours: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is richer and warmer in the original. Condition: This work is in good condition. There is very minor wear to the bottom left and top right extreme corner tips. There is a light layer of dirt adhering to the surface throughout. There is a tiny loss of paper towards the centre of the composition, visible in the catalogue illustration. All creases and imperfections are intrinsic to the artist's working process and choice of medium.
