condition

This work is in very good condition overall. The soft sculptures and synthetic flower elements are stable and well intact. These elements are mounted three separate panels. There is evidence of light dust accumulation to the crevices and a subtle variation in the pigment application throughout. The surface inconsistencies and variations to the texture of the soft sculptural elements are consistent with the artist’s choice of medium and working method. Under very close inspection, there are some scattered, very minor areas of pigment loss noted, particularly to the peaks of the soft protuberances and synthetic flower elements as well as at points along edges of the panels. Each panel is framed. 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.
