Condition:

This work is in good condition. There appears to be a natural variation to the tonality of the vellum throughout which is inherent to the artist's choice of medium. There is a slight scuff mark in the middle of the lower right panel on the upper central edge. There is also a slight scuff mark on the lower right edge of the top right panel. There is slight rubbing marks and scuffs on the outermost left edges of the lower left panel with a minor rubbing mark on the outer edge of the upper left panel on the lower outermost edge.


Colour:

The catalogue illustration is fairly accurate. The blues tend towards a lighter tonality in the original work. The overall texture and the gradients of colouration of the nature of the vellum are more evident in the original work.
