CATALUNYA (BARCELONA SERIES)
signed, titled and dated 1988 on the backboard
collage on board
23.5 by 22cm.; 9¼ by 8½in.
Unexamined out of frame. All collaged elements appear to be securely adhered to the board. The board is float mounted and appears to be secured to the back board with adhesive strips. There is some very slight lifting to the extreme edges of the board and some very minor rounding to the extreme corners. There is some light creasing to the blue collaged elements along the right hand edge, but these are almost certainly in keeping with the Artist's intentions. There is a small protrusion to the blue collaged element which appears to be in keeping with the Artist's working methods. There are a number of instances of adhesive residue, in keeping with the Artist's working methods. There is some light surface dirt and light spots of staining with one or two tiny accretions. This excepting the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
The panel is float mounted and held behind glass in a simple wooden frame.
