The colours are fairly accurate in the catalogue illustration.
The work is executed on its original canvas and is not relined.
The edges present some wears, some of which have resulted in paint losses. There are a few small areas of hairline, stabilized cracks, throughout the surface, visible only under very close inspection. There is a canvas rip at the center of the right half of the painting.
Under Ultra Violet light inspection there is no evidence of restoration.
