Please note the colours in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings.


This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged to the window mount at the upper edges verso. The upper edge is perforated, and the sheet undulated slightly. Extremely close inspection reveals a few minute drying cracks to the thicker impasto in the lower left corner.
