The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is richer and warmer in the original.
This work is in very good condition. Around the extreme edges of the frame and in a few places across the composition, there are a number of tiny media losses and fine short cracks. There is a short break to one of the plastic elements towards in the green semi circle, towards the top right quadrant, and some warping has occured to a few of the plastic elements. There is some light surface dust between the plastic elements, visible upon close inspection, and some wear and surface dirt around the extreme edges of the frame. Spots of glue residue are visible on the left side of the lower extreme edge inside the frame. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals a few small spots of retouching around the extreme edges of the frame.
