Subject Description: It is difficult, if not impossible, to discern the subject of this work as indicated by its note. Something liking the characteristic of foliage forms of the artist is suggested at the top of the panel. Otherwise it would seem to be a color improvisation with palette knife and broadly handled pigment.
Condition: Some typical crackling, not bitumen evident, no visible restoration.
