This work is in good condition overall, taking its age into account. The sheet presents three isolated 1/4-inch vertical tears at the extreme edges, two at the upper and one at the lower. It has been laid down to a mat and is stable. The colors are vibrant, and the media layer is stable. A few small isolated areas of rubbing and losses are present in the lower quadrants and upper right quadrant of the work. A few minor pinpoint losses and very fine lines of craquelure are present in the areas of white pigment, which are consistent with the age and nature of this pigment.
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.
