Property from the Collection of the Late Robert Heller
RAINBOW COMING IN
signed, titled and dated 1971
pen and ink and coloured pencil on card
54 by 80cm.; 21¼ by 31½in.
The card appears to be sound. There are a small number of tiny pushes, creases and nicks to the extreme edges and upper right and lower left corners. These are only visible upon close inspection and are not visible in the current presentation. There is one small dent to the lower centre of the work. There are a small number of tiny scuffs and scratches to the surface elsewhere, including one to the red pigment in the upper section of the rainbow. There is some staining to the extreme edges of the work, and some possible light time staining to the rest of the card. There is some very light surface dirt. This excepting the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
The work is held within a simple slip frame, behind glass.
