Please note, Condition 11 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) is no applicable to this lot
The board is stable. Inspection under UV light reveals some uneven varnish in places and some scattered small spots and lines of retouching, most of which are close to the edges and the most prominent of which is a 1.5cm-long spot to the centre of the extreme upper edge. There is some minor frame abrasion to parts of the extreme edges. There are a few localised areas of paint shrinkage and very fine lines of craquelure to some of the bright green areas of the lower left quadrant. There is a scuff mark (approximately 3cm-long) to the centre of the man's black trousers. This work is in overall good condition.
