watercolour and ink on paper
31.5 by 40 cm. 12⅜ by 15¾ in.
Executed in the 1970s.
The colour in catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly richer in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The left sheet edge is unevenly cut. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing board in two places and undulates very slightly. Extremely close inspection under the mount reveals very pale paper discoloration.
