The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is deeper, richer and warmer in the original.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing board in the upper two corners and undulates slightly. Very close inspection reveals a tiny dog ear to the upper right corner tip and some light creasing to the lower right corner. Further close inspection reveals a small loss to the centre of the upper edge and some tiny nicks along the upper edge. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra-violet light.
