This large oil painting is in an excellent condition with minimal losses despite its age (1942) and is presented in the original vintage frame. Wear is commensurate with age and use.
This is a particularly lovely example with the artists' use of vibrant colours really popping against the muted background. Excellent condition with minimal loss despite age (dated 1942).
