gouache and ink on paper, in painted artist's frame
25¼ by 20⅛ in. (64.2 by 51.1 cm.)
Executed circa 1985.
This work is in very good condition overall. There is a horizontal minor hairline scratch across the sheet with some associated pigment loss, 7½ inches from the lower edge of the paper, visible upon close inspection. There are two similar minor areas of scratching, with associated minor accretions at the upper left corner, the longest of which measures 2 inches, both visible upon close inspection. There is stray media at the upper right corner, inherent to the artist's working method and a minor area of white paint, potentially from the artist's frame, 1 1/2 inches from the red figure at the right edge. There is wear to the artist's frame, with some associated light soiling, a few pigment losses and scattered water marks along the upper edge. There are some faint accretions to the surface of the Plexiglas, not affecting the underlying view of the work, visible under raking light and upon close inspection. Framed in an artist's frame under Plexiglas.
