λ Please see Section J of our Conditions of Sale for definitions of cataloguing symbols.

Please note this lot is the property of a private individual.

Pencil on paper. The sheet is tabbed to a supporting acidic board in two places along the reverse upper edge, with evidence of three previous tabs along each reverse edge. A soft horizontal crease below the sitter's left ear. When viewed out of the mount, the left edge is slightly uneven. Some spots of foxing to the sheet in places. The graphite is strong throughout. Subject to the above it is our opinion that this work appears to be in overall good condition.
