Condition Report

The sheet has been fully laid down on to the backing board. Inspection under ultra violet light reveals a thick, milky varnish which makes close inspection largely impossible, however there are some fine lines of retouching in the lower half of the work which are visible. There are some lines of craquelure across the surface, and some evidence of scattered paint shrinkage. There is some frame abrasion to the lower and right edges, with some associated paint loss which is most significant at the lower edge. There are a small number of tiny nicks and flecks of paint loss at the extreme corners. The work appears to be in fairly good overall condition.


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.
