Colour: The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is taped verso to the window mount along the two horizontal edges and undulates slightly. The right vertical edge is deckled. Very close inspection reveals an unobtrusive network of drying cracks with a few tiny specks of associated loss to the lower centre of the composition. Examination out of its frame reveals a small loss to the extreme edge of the upper right edge.
