The colours are fairly accurate in the printed catalogue illustration although the white background is less white in the original work. Additionally, the image does not accurately convey the red painted rim on the right edge of the canvas. Tiny cracks are visible scattered throughout the background. A mark is visible from top to bottom in the center of the composition in the white background only. The extremities of the thickest impasto's contain cracks and/or tiny losses. Mainly located in the white areas there are stabilised cracks visible upon close inspection. Under ultra Violet Light inspection some of the above mentioned areas fluoresce.
