condition

The nuanced tones of this early photogram range from a rich, dark chocolate brown to a bright, creamy near-white. It is on single-weight gaslight or printing-out paper and it has a smooth, nearly matte surface that lends a somewhat soft, translucent appearance to the image's subtly shifting tones. When the print is examined closely in raking light, a number of faint creases, most of them soft, can be seen across the surface. Creases in the upper left and lower right corners appear to break the emulsion somewhat, as has a small crease descending from near the center of the print's upper edge. When examining the photogram unframed some very minute chipping of the emulsion along the left and right edges is visible. In the upper right quadrant of the image, there is a small, circular, dark deposit of indeterminate nature, possibly retouching. None of the aforementioned detracts in any meaningful way from the overall fine appearance of this unique, early image. 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.
