Condition Report

This early print is generally very good condition. There are a few matte deposits of indeterminate nature, possibly foxing, mainly in the area of the photographer's shadow. There are adhesive remnants along the lower edge of the image, possibly from a previous overmat. Very faint age-appropriate silvering is visible overall in raking light. 


The following are visible on the front and the reverse of the mount: soiling; scattered rust-colored deposits of indeterminate nature; a tack-hole at the upper right corner; and adhesive remnants along the edges. There are 2 hinge-remnants along the upper edge on the reverse.


In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
