The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the whites tend more towards true white in the original.
This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals some light bumping in places to all four edges and corner tips. Further very close inspection reveals three minute and unobtrusive media accretions; one to the lower edge, approximately 20 cm. from the lower right corner, another to the right edge, approximately 10 cm. from the lower right corner, and a third one approximately 20 cm from the centre of the upper edge. Visible only under very close inspection in raking light is an extremely faint rub mark towards the right edge, approximately 40 cm. from the lower right corner.
