Original canvas. There are abrasions to the edges with some minor associated paint loss. There are a few scuffs and scratches to the surface, notably a scratch in the light blue above the center of the right edge. There is a light layer of surface dirt and the odd stain in places. Inspection under UV light reveals an uneven varnish layer but no obvious signs of restoration. Held in a simple wooden tray frame.
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.
