The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the bull's eye tends more towards orange in the original.
This work is in good condition. There is minor wear to all four corners and edges inherent to the artist's choice of medium and working process. There is a small hole in the upper left and right corners original to the work. There are small spots of retouching throughout that fluoresce when examined under ultra-violet light.
