This work is in excellent condition overall. The colors are bright and fresh. The areas of thick impasto on the surface and along the edges are all stable and intact. Under very close inspection, there is a 1.5-inch vertical light brown media accretion at the top edge towards the left and a similarly colored thin pinpoint media accretion at the middle of the right edge, both of which appear to be inherent from the time of execution. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.

The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. 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 for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. 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. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
