Condition Report

The work is lined using wax as an adhesive and tacked to modern stretchers. A remnant of what appears to be the work's original wood stretcher has been affixed to the reverse at upper center. There appear to be frame abrasions along the extreme outer edges. Under UV light there appear to be some scattered pindots of inpaint throughout, a 1-inch spot of inpaint in the tabletop at lower right, and a 2-inch section of inpaint in the far right of the basket of cherries.


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
