The colour in the printed catalogue is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly brighter in the original, though the magenta in the background is slightly deeper in the original.
This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals stretcher bar marks to the vertical edges. Very close inspection reveals some rubbing to the extreme edges, with some associated handling marks. Further very close inspection reveals a media accretion towards towards the left edge at the centre. The canvas is slightly slack. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
