Striking color and impeccable shading with various undertones of contrasting colors help make this work a signature piece by the artist. Signed and dated '97 on the lower right. Slight wear, 1/8", to the right side (likely from the mat) with a half inch area at the top right corner have been professionally addressed and only appear under black light. The painting was also lightly cleaned by the same professional. The work presents beautifully.
