The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the browns are slightly softer in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet undulates slightly. Close inspection reveals some extremely faint craquelure to the lower right corner edge and very faint rub marks to the upper left margin.
