condition

The colours are fairly accurate in the printed catalogue illustration although the overall tonality is brighter in the original work. The red colour in the centre of the composition has more orange undertones in the original work. Additionally, the image does not accurately convey the richly nuanced surface especially on the burgundy in the lower right quadrant. Finally, the catalogue illustration does not accurately convey the thickness of the impastos. Please refer to the Contemporary Art department for a professional condition report. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
