The colours are fairly accurate in the catalogue illustration although the overall tonality is less bright in the original work, especially the yellow.
The work is executed on its original canvas and is not relined.
The corners present some wear marks, which have resulted in a paint loss at the extremity. There are few cracks visible on the thicker impastos, some of which have been stabilized. One pinhole is visible close to the upper edge, at the center. The canvas presents some inherent imperfections.
Under Ultra Violet light inspection there is no evidence of restoration.
