The board is sound. There is an area of compression to the board in the lower left corner. Along all four edges, there are very minor chips to the top surface of the board and pigments, likely due to frame abrasion. Under UV inspection, a thick layer of varnish is obscuring a good reading but there are a few pindot strokes of inpainting along the top and right edges. The work is in good condition.

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.
