Condition Report

This Cibachrome print is in generally excellent condition. The colors remain bright and saturated, with no apparent fading. As is often the case with front-mounted works, scattered faint hairline scratches, fingerprints, and dust are visible when examining the acrylic surface closely in raking light.


On the reverse, there is a 1993 exhibition label from the Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo.


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.
