Lot Number: 23
Notes: With two 1 mm losses at upper center in blue. From the reverse this is a larger 1/2 in loss in the support. 2 small indented areas at extreme right next to the blue that are punctured from the reverse but to not protrude completely through on front. 2-3 other similar pressure marks verso that also do not extend to front. A 2 mm loss at center where orange/turquoise meet that appears consistent with the artist's ink lines (in other places there are pressure marks that appear to be the result of the artist's hand). There is a 2 in hard diagonal crease at upper left. A few very minor short creases along the edges where the painted sheet has been laid down to support, presumably working method of artist. Support: 1 1/2 in vertical tear at the upper edge two edges from upper right margin corner. There is a 3 in diagonal crease through the bottom right corner so that the 12 of the date is partialy illegiable. Pale time staining. Minor surface soiling. The left edge of the support unevenly trimmed
