pencil on paper
image: 6 ½ by 6 inches (16.5 by 15.2 cm)

Executed circa 1950.
The sheet is hinged at the reverse upper corners and there is a minor crease in the extreme lower left corner. There is a 1/2 inch diagonal line of staining in the outer margin at the right edge above center likely inherent to the artist's materials and staining to the upper edge outside of the image. There appear to be a few very minor specks of imperfections.
