Size of this lovely painting is 8 x 11 3/4. Signed lower right. An evocative, exquisitely executed work.
Very good condition in a contemporary frame with double mat. The vertical area in the middle of the painting that appears to be discoloration is actually just a shadow from a little waviness in the paper. Size of the frame is 18 x 22. The framed piece will be shipped without the glass in order to avoid damage.
