Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is brighter in the original.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals an irregularity to the tape 8 cm from the upper edge and 23 cm from the right edge. All other surface irregularities appear to be in keeping with the artist's choice of materials.
