Executed in 1977. 

This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and well-stretched. The colors are vibrant, the media layer is stable. Under raking light inspection, a few tiny dots of media loss become apparent in the upper quadrants in the background. At the extreme center right edge, a 3-inch vertical faint white drip accretion is present which may be inherent. Under UV: no evidence of inpainting becomes apparent. The work is ready to hang. Framed: 85 1/4 by 51 in.
