Condition Report

Property from Various Owners is available to view at the Sotheby’s Greenford Park warehouse, 13 and 16 – 18 September (10 - 4pm), by appointment.


The copper plate is flat and stable, the paint surface is slightly dirty, and the varnish is slightly discoloured. There is some frame abrasion along all four margins, with a handful of associated paint losses. There is a tiny spot of paint loss in the rock, lower left, as well as two further tiny spots in the waterfall, lower left. There are two tiny scuffs on the paint surface, with associated visible retouching, in the hermit's torso and just to his right. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals a thick and opaque varnish, underneath which it is difficult to discern any intervention, save for a spot of retouching just above the figure's lower leg. The painting is in overall good condition.


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.
