Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is lighter in the original. Please note the colours in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings. Condition: This work is in good condition. All collaged elements are stable. Very close inspection reveals some tiny specks of wear and loss to all four extreme corner tips and in places to the overturn edges.There is a pattern of drying craquelure throughout. Very close inspection reveals five small networks of cracks; two to the pink pigment towards the centre of the left hand edge, two towards the upper left hand corner, which appear to have been consolidated and fluoresce darkly under ultra-violet light, and one towards the centre right of the bottom edge, which has a small spot of associated loss. Close inspection reveals a superficial layer of surface dirt in places to the white pigment. No further restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light. 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. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.
