The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate.
This work is in good condition. All collaged elements. Close inspection reveals some slightly darker areas along the extreme left-hand edge, all of which fluoresce darkly when examined under ultra-violet light, and appear to relate to historic repairs. Further close inspection reveals a few light scuffs in isolated places throughout.
