DIFFERENCES NOTED BETWEEN THE INVENTORY LISTING AND YOUR OBSERVATIONS AND RESEARCH:
The inventory has no description of the work's condition..but it appears to be in excellent condition. One difference to note is that the Sculpture Garden has labeled the work Night Presence II". The Inventory only entitles it "Night Presence". The Inventory does indicate that the work is owned by the San Diego Museum of Art- so, it would appear the Museum has mislabelled the piece.
