AUDIENCE 10 (GALLERIA DELL'ACCADEMIA), FLORENZ
mural-sized chromogenic print, Diasec-mounted, frame to the photographer's specification, his label, signed in pencil, and a Marian Goodman Gallery, New York, label on the reverse, 2004, no. one in an edition of 10
70⅝ by 119⅝ in. (179.4 by 303.8 cm.)
This chromogenic print is in generally good condition. The colors have shifted toward red overall, except along the extreme right edge.
As is typical of large, face-mounted work, fingerprints are visible on the acrylic surface in raking light. Scattered scratches are visible on the acrylic face-mount overall. There are two more pronounced areas of scratches in the center and right portions of the image. There are dry liquid deposits in the upper center that are visible in raking light. A small yellow deposit of indeterminate nature is visible in the lower left quadrant.
The artist's frame is in generally very good condition. There is chipping of the grey paint in the upper right corner of the frame.
The colors in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although it appears slightly less magenta in person.
