Please Note: This print came out of a major London auction house that neglected to mention in their catalog listing that the print was matted improperly with a non acid-free mat so the print sustained “mat burn” on the outer margins. The image part of the print is still lovely, thereby matted properly with a conservation mat, the print will be stable (information provided by a well known conservator) and will provide many, many years of enjoyment. This print is priced below market price because of this previously unreported condition.
