signed and titled on the reverse 

oil on canvas

34¼ by 46 in. 87 by 116.8 cm.

framed: 34¾ by 46¾ in. 88.3 by 118.7 cm.

Executed circa 1960. 

This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and slightly loosely stretched. The colors are vibrant, and the media layer is stable. Minor frame abrasion and a few scattered associated pinpoint media losses are present along the extreme edges of the canvas. A few additional pinpoint spots of media loss are present in the upper left quadrant. Under raking light: a few faint 2-inch fine lines of craquelure become apparent in the upper left quadrant; these are all stable. Under UV: fluorescence occurs in the central quadrants which is inherent to the media selected by the artist. Framed.
