This work is in overall good condition. There are minor scratches to the print - in the upper central part of the image and lower right hand corner. However, Hassan Hajjaj Studio has confirmed the supply of a excellent brand new print to the winning bid at Sotheby’s expense. The mat and outer frame are in good condition.
The catalogue illustration is fairly accurate with the overall tonality of the work being a bit darker in the original work.

"We have different visions but we have a love of Morocco in common. I love this guy because he really pushed people to express themselves...He saw my drawings and told me I had to take them seriously and work on them, and really pushed me into painting, so I'm grateful."
