Sans titre (Une femme lâchant un oiseau)


signed max ernst and dated 55 (lower right)

oil on canvas

55 by 46cm., 21⅝ by 18⅛in.

Framed: 63 by 54cm., 24¾ by 21¼in.

Painted in 1955.

The canvas is not lined. The edges are taped. Inspection under UV light reveals some small spots of retouching to parts of the upper, right and lower edges, related to previous frame rubbing and a possible area of historic retouching (approx. 2.5 by 1cm) to the lower part of the right edge. The canvas is very slightly undulating at the corners. There is some minor frame abrasion to the extreme edges. This work is in overall good condition.
