The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although there are fewer magenta undertones visible in the original and the overall tonality is brighter in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing mount in two places on the upper edge and all four edges are deckled. Visible only when examined out of its frame there is some evidence of light and unobtrusive frame rubbing from previous framing in places along the edges and a small crease to the lower left corner.
