Please note, Condition 11 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) is no applicable to this lot
The artist's sheet has been laid on a sheet of cardboard, covered by a mount, thus preventing inspection of the reverse. With the exception of some small scattered spots of discoloration throughout, which are not too distracting to the naked eye, this work is in good condition and is ready to hang.
Presented mounted, glazed and framed.
