The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although there are no brown undertones to the pencil in the original. The catalogue illustration also fails to convey the brown pastel on the extreme right hand edge.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is attached verso to the mount in several places. Close inspection reveals some light handling creases to the upper right and lower left corners.
