The work is well preserved and well presented. There are a number of tiny foxmarks but these are only visible on very close inspection and do not interfere with the image. In a raking light it is possible to make out a soft crease that runs across the sheet from left to right. Again, this can only be seen on close inspection. There are a number of skilful repairs to the extreme edges of the sheet, which are covered by the existing mount.


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. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.

Due to coastal erosion, the village of Dunwich - an important medieval town - began crumbling into the sea in the thirteenth century. The Norman church of All Saints Church succumbed to the same fate in 1904.
