The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. The sheets are attached verso to the backing mount and all edges are deckled. The sheets undulate slightly and there are artist's pinholes in several places along the edges. Close inspection reveals very light creasing to the lower corners. There is a small media accretion towards the figure's forehead. All other surface irregularities and tears are in keeping with the artist's working process.
