The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. Extremely close inspection in raking light reveals a minute and unobtrusive imperfection to the glass towards the centre of the lower right panel, which is in keeping with the artists’ choice of media. Further extremely close inspection reveals an extremely fine line to the S on the lower right panel which is also original and in keeping with the artists’ working process.
