Colour: The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although it fails to fully convey the neon qualities of the pink and orange paint.
This work is in very good condition. There is some light canvas draw towards the left hand side of the composition. Extremely close inspection under raking light reveals a few tiny hairline cracks and some rub marks in places throughout. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals two spots of inpainting, one towards the lower left hand corner tip and one towards the centre of the composition.
