The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly lighter and brighter in the original.
This work is in good condition. The masonite board is slightly warped on the top edge. There is a line of loss approximately 15cm in length towards the centre left of the top edge, as visible in the catalogue illustration. Close inspection reveals some minor abrasions and surface accretions in places throughout and a short hairline scratch to the lower centre of the right hand edge.
