The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the overall tonality is deeper and richer in the original.
This work is in very good and original condition. All collaged elements are stable. Very close inspection reveals some thin tension cracks running intermittently along the edges and very faint wear to the extreme edges and in places on the surface, which is likely to be original and in keeping with the artist's working process and choice of media. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra violet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
