signed Paul G.
oil on canvas
100 by 100cm.; 39⅜ by 39⅜in.
Executed in 1986.
This work is in very good condition. There is some minor paint loss in the upper right section due to age and thickness of impasto. There is a slight craquelure in the surrounding impasto. There are some rubbing marks on four corners and along the outer edges. There is no restoration apparent when viewed under the UV light.
The catalogue illustration is accurate; although the colours are slightly lighter in the original work.
