SEAN SCULLY | TOWERS
signed and dated 2003 on a label affixed to the reverse
C-prints, in 9 parts, each front-mounted to acrylic and flush-mounted to aluminum
each: 35½ by 13¾ in. 90.2 by 34.9 cm.
Executed in 2003, this work is number 8 from an edition of 10.
This suite of 9 Cibachrome prints is in generally very good to excellent condition. The colors remain bright and saturated, with no apparent fading. As is typical of works that are front-mounted to acrylic, the following are visible when examined closely in raking light: dust; hairline scratches; fingerprints and soiling; and dried liquid deposits. These do not detract in any way from the overall fine appearance of this suite.
Annotations in ink on the reverse refer to the color of each panel. On the reverse of the first panel, there is a signed label and a Timothy Taylor gallery label.
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.
