Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. There are some hairline cracks visible at intervals towards all four edges; a number of faint hairline cracks in places along the centre of the work; some diagonal hairline cracks to the top right corner and rising upwards from the bottom edge towards the right corner; and a further small number of hairline cracks scattered in places throughout. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals that some of the cracks have been stabilised and minimally and reversibly in-painted.
