Condition report

The work is in very good condition. Executed on cream wove paper. The sheet is hinged in two places along the top edge of its verso and at one place along the bottom edge of its verso. The left, right and bottom edges have been unevenly cut. There is a one inch flattened crease in the top left corner. All four edges have a very faint mat stain. The medium is strong and well preserved.

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 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.
