The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly lighter in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is held loosely in its frame and undulates slightly. There are artist's pinholes in intermittent places along the upper horizontal edge. Examination out of its frame reveals some small spots of paper skinning towards all four corner tips, which relates to previous framing. Very close inspection reveals a few minute nicks in intermittent places along the lower horizontal edge.
