Lot number 408, Views: 27

Property from the Collection of J.E. Safra CARL LARSSON Swedish 1853 - 1919 VERKSTADEN (THE WORKSHOP) signed with the artist's monogram (lower right) watercolor, gouache and pen and ink on paper laid down on canvas 21 by 29½ in. 53.3 by 74.9 cmCondition ReportThe following condition report was kindly provided by Alvarez Conservation Services: The primary paper layer is pasted down to a thin lining canvas and wrapped around a 2" wide four piece strainer with nailed tacking edges and framers tape residue. Mild soiling is visible throughout the surface. The paper layer does not present tears, losses, or distortions. There are five original pin holes at the corners from the time of execution. The primary paper layer is faintly oxidized from contact with acidic material and a natural process of aging due to light exposure. This is evenly visible throughout. There is a subtle water tide mark at the bottom near center edge. At the bottom left quadrant there is a presence of some subtle cosmetic surface blending for unknown reasons. Otherwise, although some degree of fading is to be expected for a work of art of this age, the media is well preserved. "This lot is offered for sale subject to Sotheby's Conditions of Business, which are available on request and printed in Sotheby's sale catalogues.
