Condition Report

White accretions to the upper left-hand corner as well as other minor spots elsewhere. Wear to the black paint surface in places. Light wear and associated minor loss sporadically along the edges and sides of the work. Loss to the wood on lower right corner but this appears to be inherent to the work. Light nicks and scratches in places, however this is in line with the artist's practice and materials. Minor paint and chalk marks on the reverse, looks inherent.


This work is unframed.


Colours in the catalogue illustration are slightly brighter, particularly within the carved background.
