Property from the collection of Mr. Seymour Stein
signed Etting (lower right); also titled Virgilio França and dated 1966 (on the reverse)
oil and acrylic on paperboard
20 x 26 in.; 50.8 x 66 cm
The paperboard is slightly toned and there appears to be a 1-inch crack at the extreme lower right edge above the figure's shoulder. Remnants of the artist's brush hairs are visible in the paint layer and there appears to be a few scattered pindots of possible surface accretion likely inherent to the artist's process.
