The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the overall tonality is softer and warmer in the original.
This work is in very good condition. There is a superficial layer of dust caught between the work and the plexiglass. There are some minor media accretions in places, most notably on the lower corner of the top panel. There is a further 2mm circular accretion on the wrist on the upper section of the central panel, all of which appear to be removable with a soft cloth. There are light wear in places to the outer black frame tray.
