Condition

Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the paper tone turns more towards to cream in the original. Condition: This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing board in numerous places. All collaged elements are stable. Very close inspection reveals some superficial rub marks in isolated places throughout, a minute dog ear to the extreme upper left hand corner and a tiny nick to the centre left of the extreme upper edge.
