The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. There is a very small drip mark left of centre on the lower edge. There is a further media accretion towards the top left corner. There are three fly spots above the centre of the composition. There is a further minute fly spot at the top of the right extreme edge with a tiny short crack to the left of this. There are three spirals of hairline cracks to the cream pigment in the lower right corner, visible only upon very close inspection. There is a further hairline crack in the green pigment above the artist's signature. There are a few tiny losses to a few of the impasto peaks to the centre-right of the composition. There is a very small indentation to the centre-right of the top right hand quadrant. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra-violet light.
