Please note that consumer cancellation rights do not apply to this lot.

Structural condition: Canvas appears original. It is unlined and sturdy


Surface: The surface of the works exhibits patterns of paint cracks and craquelure, visible across the work on close inspection. There are light horizontal marks in the upper and lower registers of the canvas, this is due to the stretcher bars behind the work. There appear to be what looks like dirt across the work, particularly in the upper right-hand side of the work and would benefit from a clean.


UV Report: Inspection under UV light reveals areas of possible retouching.


Summary: The work is in a good and stable condition.


Please note that this work is framed


Further Enquiries: Please telephone the department on +44 (0) 207 293 6323 or email africanctp@sothebys.com if you have any questions regarding the present work.
