The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although much more vibrant and textured in the original.
This work is in very good condition. A light dust has settled on some of the areas of thicker impasto and there is a pinpoint spot of loss along the top edge towards the left just below the frame. Under extremely close inspection, a few minor hairline cracks are visible. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
