Watercolor on paper, sheet size 10 1/4 x 15 1/4 in. (39.5 x 47.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Toning, tack holes to corners, not examined out of frame.
Provenance: Christie's New York, Thursday, September 25, 2008, Fine American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture, Lot 154; through to Bonhams New York, Tuesday, November 19, 2019, American Art, Lot 76; to the current private Massachusetts collection.
Condition: Framed dimensions are 24 x 27 x 1 in.
The work is framed so that the edges of the sheet are visible.
The frame was opened during previews, but it was found that, while the work is not laid down, the watercolor paper is affixed to the back mat just inside the four corners of the reverse, so it was not possible to examine the back of the sheet.
