The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is lighter, brighter and whiter in the original.
This work is in good condition. Close inspection reveals some light handling marks, superficial rub marks and media accretions and some small chips to the paint, most notably to the extreme edges. Further close inspection reveals a very thin vertical crack to one of the planes and a short and unobtrusive dent to the bottom of one of the planes. Very close inspection reveals a few tiny lines of inpainting in isolated places.
