Condition Report

Executed on cream laid paper, not laid down, hinged to the mount in two places along the upper edge and floating in the over-mount. All four edges are unevenly torn, most unevenly on the lower and right edges. The sheet is slightly time-stained and there are a few spots of foxing in places. There is some surface dirt and handling marks in places, much of which is inherent to the artist's process. There is a small nick to the upper part of the extreme left edge and a very minor horizontal crease to the left part of the extreme lower edge. There is a small area of watercolour and pen and ink towards the lower right corner, presumably part of another work by the artist, from when the present sheet was part of a larger sheet. This work is in overall good condition.

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.
