The main image is of thirteen hollow tubes that run vertically. The tubes alternate from yellow to blue, and each tube has gray shading on their right side to give the impression of three-dimensionality. Offset to the right of these tubes is a gray wash that serves as the tubes’ shadow. To the lower left of the paper is a sketch of alternating blue, red and yellow vertical stripes and a collection of gray and red brushstrokes.
