Dr. Jürgen Pech has confirmed the authenticity of this work, which will be included in the supplementary volume of the Complete Works of Max Ernst now in preparation, edited by Prof. Dr Werner Spies in collaboration with Dr. Jürgen Pech and Sigrid Metken.

The panel is sound. The edges are slightly uneven. There is a small loss to the panel on the upper part of the left edge and some tiny paint losses to the blue element to the right edge, which have been sensitively retouched, but which are not visible under UV light. This work is in overall good condition.
