The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso intermittently along the edges to the mat. There are multiple artist's pinholes in each corner, and the pinholes at the lower left and upper corners appear to have been torn by the artist at the time of execution. There is a slight undulation to the sheet, inherent to the artist's working method. There is light evidence of handling to the sheet including a minor dent and partial tear along the upper left edge and a minor dent along the bottom edge towards the left. There is a pinpoint pink media accretion and a few scattered pinpoint brown media accretions on the right side, likely from the time of execution. Under raking light, two minor light dents to the sheet are visible in the upper and lower left margins.
