Catalogue Note

"This small jewel-like painting by Richard Pousette-Dart was begun circa 1948 and worked on until 1978. Layering oil paint, sand and other materials, Richard liked to work over and over, through and through, working up the surface until the painting became a 'thing of its own' as he said, translucent and mysterious." - Evelyn Pousette-Dart, in a letter to the current owner, September 25, 1995
