The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the sky is less blue and there is more contrast in the original. The catalogue illustration also fails to fully convey the three-dimensional nature of the collaged elements.
This work is in very good condition. All collaged elements are stable. Close inspection reveals some glue residue in places, and some wrinkles to the paper in the lower centre of the second panel, which appears to be keeping with the artist's working process. Further very close inspection reveals some small and unobtrusive signs of wear to the paper along the edges.
