IN THE BOX (VERTICAL)
mounted, signed in pencil on the mount, 1962 (The Eternal Body, pl. 20)
10 by 6 in. (25.4 by 15.2 cm.)
This matte-surface photograph, on a thin textured mount, is in generally excellent condition. When examined very closely in raking light, the following are visible: a few tiny deposits of original retouching; and a faint 2-inch scratch to the right of the sitter's torso and a 1-1/2-inch diagonal scratch in the lower left corner, both of which are superficial and do not break the emulsion.
In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.
