Condition

Structurally sound. There is very minor lifting appearing to one or two of the applied screen sheets in the upper left hand quadrant, only visible upon extremely close inspection. There is a tiny instance of tearing and creasing to the extreme lower left hand edge of the 'eye' block 2 in and 2 up from the bottom right corner. There are further very minor handling marks apparent upon extremely close inspection, in keeping with the nature of the Artist's techniques and materials, but this excepting the work appears in very good overall condition, with strong, vivid colours throughout. Housed in the Artist's thick, pine wooden frame. Please contact the department on +44 (0) 207 293 6424 if you have any questions regarding the present lot.
