Nocturne II


signed Joseph Stella (lower left) and partially signed again Stella (upper left)

pastel and ink on paper

sheet: 17 by 24 inches (43.2 by 61 cm)

framed: 28 by 35 inches (71.1 by 88.9 cm)

Executed circa 1919.

The sheet is affixed to its support in two places along the reverse top edge. The extreme outer edges of the sheet appear to be uneven and were likely cut down by the artist, including along the upper edge where a partial signature is visible in the upper left corner. The sheet maintains a natural ripple.
