The present work was featured on the cover of Good Housekeeping magazine in April, 1927.
Excellent original condition, with bright, fresh colors and no evidence of any restoration. The work is framed and matted, with brown papertape pieces at parts of outer top, right and left edges of board affixed on the verso to the mat. We have not taken the board out of the mat (i.e. we have not cut the tape pieces on the verso to separate the board from the mat) but note a small area of surface loss to board at outer right edge near bottom (covered over by overmat, and only noted by lifting up of overmat).
Frame: 28 3/5 x 21 3/4 x 1 in.
