“Money is sexy, believe me. Anyone who says it isn’t is either lying or they’ve never had any” (Tracey Emin in conversation with Ralph Rugoff in: Exh. Cat., London, Hayward Gallery, Tracey Emin: Love is What You Want, 2011, p. 167).
The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate.
This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing board in numerous places and undulates slightly. Very close inspection in raking light reveals some very fine horizontal scratches to the print in the upper register, which appear to relate to the artist's printing process. Extremely close inspection reveals a minute crease in the centre of the lower white border and a few minute nicks to the centre of the extreme right hand edge.
