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.


Cataloguing

Provenance

Alan Cristea Gallery, London

Acquired from the above by David Teiger in August 1998

Catalogue Note

Amsterdam based Dutch artist, Jan Dibbets, began his career as an art teacher before moving on to study painting and eventually using those concepts to shape his photography practice. Focusing on light, perspective and space, Dibbets found inspiration in the architecture of Barcelona.


Spanish Art Historian and Curator Gloria Moure notes, “Together we wandered, unhurriedly but without pausing, through many places, seeking suitable interiors and natural light. Finally, Dibbets chose the skylight and dome of Elorn, the former central market built of wrought iron, the fantastic architecture of the vault of the Palau Güell, and the “butterfly” window of the Pedralbes horse stables designed by Gaudi.”
