PaceWildenstein, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner in 2001
New York, PaceWildenstein, Robert Mangold: Curled Figure Paintings, March - April 2001, pp. 34-35, illustrated in color
"I did not want to use a 'European' idea of color, colors that come out of taste, out of something 'beautiful.' As an escape I used the colors of very ordinary objects, from manila envelopes to brown paper bags and grey staplers."
This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of light wear and handling along the edges. The color is bright, fresh and clean. Under extreme raking, a few minor drip accretions are visible in the lower half. Under Ultraviolet inspection, the aforementioned drip accretions fluoresce brightly but are not the the result of restoration. Unframed.
