Condition

Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although it fails to fully convey the neon qualities in the pink paint. Condition: This work is in very good condition. Extremely close inspection reveals some light handling along th eedges with two associated very light and unobtrusive rub marks; one towards the centre of the lower edge and another towards the centre of the right edge. Further close inspection reveals a minute media accretion towards the upper left corner and very faint stretcher bar impressions along the horizontal edges. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra violet light.
