Please note the color and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings


This impressive, mural-sized chromogenic print is in generally excellent condition. The colors are bright and saturated, with no signs of fading. Under very close inspection there is a faint diagonal ripple across the lower left corner that affects only a small area of the image, as well as a faint handling crease in the lower left margin corner. In the upper left margin the following are visible: a short 1/8-in. tear, a minor bump and a diagonal crease in the corner that does not appear to break the emulsion. None of these issues affect the overall appearance of this print.
