Property from a Private American Collection
UNTITLED (FROM 'MY GHOST')
a unique object, mural-sized photogram, mounted to muslin, framed, a Cheim & Read, New York, label on the reverse, 2001
87¼ by 55½ in. (221.6 by 141 cm.)
This unique object, a mural-sized photograph mounted to muslin, is in generally excellent condition. As intended by the artist, it is framed unglazed.
Upon very close examination, the following are visible: a few pinpoint impressions; and minor isolated edge chipping. There are several small creases, including two in the lower right corner, that were likely a result of the mounting process; while these may break the emulsion, they do not detract in any way from the overall impressive object quality of this unique work.
This photograph has recently undergone conservation and a full treatment report is available from the department upon request.
