The colours in the printed catalogue are fairly accurate although the tonality of the paper tends more towards soft cream in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the window mount along the upper edge and undulates slightly. Extremely close inspection reveals some faint handling marks towards the centre of the lower edge and a tiny spec of media to the right edge approximately 10 cm. from the centre. Further close inspection revels a faint and unobtrusive horizontal impression along the upper edge.
