Condition report

Colour:

Please note the colours in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings


Condition:

This work is in very good condition. The sheet is attached verso to the backing board in several places. Extremely close inspection reveals a few minute nicks in places to the extreme outer edges, as well as four tiny spots of paper skinning to the lower white border, towards the lower right corner. Further extremely close inspection reveals two spots with uneven pigment colour; one towards the centre of the left edge and another towards the centre of the composition, both of which are most probably original and reflected in the catalogue raisonee image.
