This work is in very good condition. All surface irregularities are in keeping with the artist's working process and choice of materials. Close inspection reveals some surface irregularities to the tape surrounding the cheese squares, as well as some loose threads to the central fabric on the figure. Further close inspection reveals some minor fabric residue in isolated places throughout, and some white marks at the upper left and lower corners, which are likely to be original. The frame is in very good condition with some very minor faint scratches.
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 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.
