The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate although the overall tonality is brighter snd more vibrant in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is attached verso to the backing board in several places and undulates. There are artist’s pinholes in numerous places. All collaged elements are stable, although there are some raised areas in places, all of which appear to be stable. There is some evidence of handling in isolated places, which is in keeping with the artist’s working process.
