Boys in the Sand. These two paintings were done for a trade advertisement for Eminence, a French manufacturer of men's swimsuits and underwear. The ad contained these two paintings and one other similar image by Sultana.
The trade advertisement, which is a large poster-sized tableau for salesmen is included in the lot. Also included are two autograph letters in English from the artist to collector J. B. Rund (Paris, 18 November and 18 December 1980).
These evocative paintings are perfect for a smart home in The Fire Island Pines. A sturdy houseboy could easily manage both of them at once on the Sayville ferry.
