PORTRAIT NO. 28
signed, titled, dated 2010 and inscribed on the reverse
acrylic on canvas
120 by 100 cm. 47⅜ by 39⅜ in.
This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals some media accretions adhered to the areas of thicker impasto in the upper left quadrant of the composition. The canvas is slightly slack. Extremely close inspection reveals a few small rub marks along the extreme left edge, at the extreme upper edge towards the right corner and at the lower right corner tip. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
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.
