Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the canvas is slightly darker in the original and the catalogue illustration fails to convey the stretcher bars that are visible through the canvas.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals some signs of light wear in places along the edges and some media accretions that have adhered to the surface in places. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
