The work is brighter and a bit more contrasted than in the catalogue image, especially the background, which is a deeper ocre. Moreover, the shapes are more blue in the original work.
The work is a free non woven fabric. There are a few horizontal fold marks, and one vertical, visible in the catalogue illustration. The four corners present some pinholes visible only under very close inspection (2 on the upper and lower right corners, 3 on the lower left corner, 4 on the upper right corner and 1 at the middle of the right edge).
