The canvas has been lined. Under UV, there is old retouching along the edges to address frame abrasion, as well as some newer specks of retouching in the green background, particularly surrounding the tulip extending out of the bouquet on the upper left, and a small touch in the pink/white peony at the bottom left. These retouchings are not visible in natural light, and the work is otherwise in very good condition. 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. NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.
