condition

- A paper foldline could be seen at the upper section of the painting. This is not a condition problem as this was the situation when the artist created this piece. - There are several areas on the painting where the artist removed certain details which he did not find satisfactory, on which he replaced the area with new paper and re-painted. The process was completed by the artist himself, and is a usual practise of Li Keran, thus not considered to be a condition problem, but part of the art itself. - Generally in good condition. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report.
