Condition Report

The work appears to be slightly dirty throughout. There appear to be frame abrasions along the extreme outer edges of the canvas with associated flake losses, most noticeably along the center left edge. There appear to be additional flake losses particularly in the lower right quadrant and an area beneath the rider at left. These losses are visible to the naked eye, leaving light-blue ground layer exposed. Under UV light there do not appear to be any signs of inpaint or previous restoration.


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.
