The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the overall tonality is brighter and more vibrant and the white tends more towards cream in the original.
This work is in good condition. The sheet is held between the backing board and a Perspex sheet and undulates slightly. There are some oxidation stains in places to the upper half of the composition, notably towards the centre and running parallel to the vertical numerical element. Close inspection reveals some hairline cracks to the lower left corner, and some media accretions running vertically towards the lower edge.
