Condition

The sheet appears sound. The edges of the sheet have been slightly unevenly cut, thought to be in keeping with the Artist's working materials. There is evidence of old adhesive tabs in all four corners. There are some slight creases and handling marks to the sheet in places, and there is a light scuff running the height of the work to the right side of the sheet. There are some further light scuffs to scattered areas. There are some instances of surface dirt and studio detritus, most apparent around the edges of the work. There are some areas of uneven speckling in the upper and lower left quadrants. Subject to the above, the work appears to be in good overall condition. The sheet is window mounted and held in a simple white painted wood frame under glass. Please telephone the department on +44 (0) 207 293 6424 if you have any questions regarding the present work.
