signed Mayo; signed, titled, and dated Roma '68 on the reverse
oil on canvas
55 by 46cm.; 21¾ by 18in.
This work is in good condition. There is a minor scratch on top left, only visible upon closer inspection. There is some light wear to bottom right corner. The work would benefit from a light clean. There is no restoration apparent when viewed under the UV light.
The catalogue illustration is accurate; however, the yellowish skin colour on the figure tends more towards a soft tan colour in the original work.
