The colours are fairly accurate in the catalogue illustration although the overall tonality is slightly brighter in the original work.
There are pinholes in each corner and along the edges. One small area of hairline cracks is visible on a thicker area of paint, at the center of the composition. There is one small tear to the sheet, dating prior to the laid down process, perpendicular to the lower edge.
