Pastel, colored pencil and pencil on paper

Framed: 25¼ by 27¾ in. (64.1 by 70.5 cm)

Executed circa 1955. 

This work is in good condition overall. The sheet is hinged to the mat with acid-free tape on the verso along the extreme upper and lower edges. The sheet is faintly yellowed overall. The colors are vibrant, and the media layer is stable. A few stray marks and a very faint vertical crease through the center of the sheet are present, which are inherent. Under raking light inspection, very faint bands of mat-burn become apparent at the extreme edges of the sheet, measuring two inches on the right and left edges, and 1/4 inch along the upper and lower edges. Framed under glass.
