gouache and pastel on paper
46 by 55.4cm., 18⅛ by 21¾in.
Framed: 66.2 by 74.5cm., 26 by 29⅜in.
Executed in 1959.
Executed on a thick sheet of buff wove paper, not laid down and taped to the overmount along all four edges. The sheet is slightly bowed, probably to some extent due to the way the work is currently mounted. There is a pea-sized area of paint abrasion to the lower right corner of the white painted element. This work is in overall very good condition.
