25 x 30

  • Provenance: Private collection, St. Louis, MO; Private collection, Rancho Santa Fe, CA
  • Condition: Visual: Stable craquelure throughout. Frame abrasion along the four edges and a few specks of paint loss in the lower left quadrant. The signature has been rubbed and the original canvas is separating from the lining in the upper left corner. Black Light: There is touch-up and crack-fill scattered throughout the sky and on the right side of the painting. There are a few areas of touch-up along the upper edge and a dime-sized dot of touch-up in the right center. There is an approx. 2 x 3-in. area of touch-up in the lower right corner and a 3 x 2-in. scattered area of touch-up in along the lower center edge. Other pigments flouresce under blacklight but these appear to be in the hand of the artist.
