Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the paper tone is lighter in the original.
Condition: This work is in good condition. All collaged elements are stable and the sheet undulates slightly. There are some stains, signs of wear and frame rubbing to the outer edges. There is a small tear to the lower right-hand corner and a small loss to the paper 5 cm above that. The paper and photographs appear to have discoloured.
