    Condition Report*:

    Path by Mosque is laid on board measuring 15.5 x 22.25 inches; there are two small notches of loss in lower and upper left corners as well as light overall surface grime; Afternoon Conversations is laid on board measuring 20 x 23.5 inches; board has loss and cracks throughout - none affecting image; there appears to be light overall paper discoloration and surface grime with a tiny pinhole in lower right corner; however, the rough texture and large grain of paper makes condition issues difficult to discern in both works. Not framed.
