The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly cooler in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing board in numerous places and undulates slightly. Extremely close inspection reveals some tiny nicks in intermittent places to the extreme lower edge, and some tiny specks of loss in isolated places throughout. Very close inspection reveals some minute dogears to all four extreme corner tips and a very short and faint rub mark to the centre of the extreme right hand edge.
