Condition

Colour: The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the background is lighter, brighter and more yellow in the original. Condition: This work is in very good condition. Extremely close inspection reveals some very faint hairline cracks to the extreme overturn edge towards the top of the left hand edge and to the bottom of the lower right edge. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra-violet light.
