oil on board
10 ½ x 8 ½ inches (26.7 x 21.6 cm)
Painted circa 1925.
This work retains its original frame designed by the artist.
The surface of the work appears to be slightly dirty. There appear to be frame abrasions along the extreme outer edges of the board with corresponding chip losses along the right edge and in the upper left corner. Under UV light there appears to be scatter pindots and a few small spots of inpaint in the white sky.
