(i - Card Players)

The artist's sheet has been fully glued onto a sheet of cardboard, thus preventing inspection of the back. The sheet is somewhat undulated. There are small, scattered spots of foxing throughout and pin-head sized nail holes are visible along the extreme edges and at the four corners. Overall, this work is in fair condition and is ready to hang.

Presented glazed, in a simple wooden frame.


(ii - Woman in an Interior)

The board is somewhat undulated towards the left hand side and there are some fine, scattered splits, mostly visible upon inspection, notably closer to the upper edge. One small nail hole is visible in the far upper right corner, along with two minor spots of paint loss. One small indent is also visible in the seat of the chair. Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals some isolated spots and lines of retouching addressing craquelure. Overall, this work is in good condition and is ready to hang.


Presented in a dark wooden frame with a beige inner slip.
