Condition: This work is in very good condition. There is a surface imperfection running vertically on the left extreme side which is inherent of the artist's choice of medium and working style. There are three very minor and light surface scratches in the centre only visible upon close inspection. There is no restoration apparent when viewed under the UV light.
Colour: The catalogue illustration is very accurate; although the vertical white line in the catalogue illustration is not as evident and visible in the original work.
