The following condition report is provided by K&S Conservation Ltd. who are external specialists and not employees of Sotheby's:


The painting is presumed to be painted in oil on a single piece of copper. The copper is approximate 1mm thick, hence fragile and easily malleable. There are some dents and cracks in painting, caused by external force, this is particularly visible in the upper right-hand corner. However, they are a sign of the fragile, and nature of the painting support. The preparatory and paint layers are sound, and there is no sign of flaking or corrosion, as is sometime the case with painting on copper. As a result, the paint layers are overall in very good condition. The current restoration has been skillfully executed some time ago. The existing varnish and the retouching have not discoloured or degraded to a significant degree. The surface gloss is even and saturating.



"In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective, qualified opinion. Prospective buyers should also refer to any Important Notices regarding this sale, which are printed in the Sale Catalogue.
