Condition: This work is in good condition. There are very minor spots on bottom left and few along the right side of the canvas due to age and discoloration of the varnish. There is a very small rubbing mark on the centre along the top edge. There is very light craquelure on lower centre, mainly on the white paint due to the thick impasto which is related to the artist's style of working and choice of medium. The painting could benefit from a very light clean. Overall, this work is in good condition.
Colours: The catalogue illustration is very accurate; however the overall tonality is more vibrant and slightly brighter in the original work.
