Rond avec cobalt 


signed Soto, titled and dated 1972 (on the reverse)

painted wood, wire and metal construction 

39½ by 39½ by 9½ in.

100.3 by 100.3 by 24.1 cm.

Executed in 1972. 

This work is in very good condition overall. The panel is flat and even. The wire and metal elements are all stable, secure, and accounted for. A few minor very fine lines of hairline craquelure measuring less than 2 inches in length at the longest are present along the extreme edges of the striped panel, which are consistent with its age. Under raking light inspection, a few faint minor scuffs become apparent in the white panel which are consistent with its age. A few scattered transparent glossy drip accretions become apparent on the striped panel. A few white pinpoint spot accretions become apparent in the lower quadrant of the striped panel. The work is ready to hang.
