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

The condition of lots can vary widely and the nature of the lots sold means that they are unlikely to be in a perfect condition. Lots are sold in the condition they are in at the time of sale.

The sheet is hinged in places on the reverse to the underlying support. The sheet undulates slightly. The edges of the sheet are deckled. The extreme vertical edges have yellow slightly. All collage elements appear to be present and adhere well to the underlying support. There are a few small faint stains to the lower horizontal edge, presumably media splash occurring in the artist's studio. Subject to the foregoing, it is our view that the work is in generally good condition.

Additional Charge Details

Additional charges, including buyer’s premium, value added, sales or compensating use tax or equivalent tax, any and all shipping expenses, including costs, packing and handling, any loss damage liability fees, customs duty, import tax, any local clearance fees applicable for your country and all other applicable charges will apply. In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay to us the buyer’s premium together with any applicable value added tax, sales, or compensating use tax or equivalent tax in the place of sale.

AN IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING NEW YORK SALES TAX

Christie's is required to collect New York sales tax for any property purchased in this sale if (a) either you or your agent (including a contract carrier) collect the property in New York (even if New York is not the final destination) or (b) Christie's arranges shipment of the property into New York State. The amount of New York sales tax varies depending on the location of the shipment within New York State. We recommend that you obtain your own independent tax advice if you have further questions.

This applies even if you wish to export the lot and an export license is, or may be, required.
