|Notes||LH notes, "The painting is not in pristine condition in general, and there is some chipping to the edges.
The canvas has been somewhat badly re-stretched; it is possible that it was Moss's intention to have a white strip at the top of the composition.
The surface is rich, hard and lacquered -and the abutment of colours is mosaic tile-like. The yellow and red both seem to be translucent rather than opaque, and the red particularly (vermilion) is jewel-like. The glossy sheen of the paint could indicate a varnish, or a high ratio of oil content in the mixture. There is some indication of masking. The large white area is translucent and marble-like."
