THE THREE VEILED ONES AND THE REVEALED ONE

Gifted from the New York Academy of Art in 1999.
Frame: 51 3/4 x 75 in.
With minor surface debris and accumulated dust variously. With a few intermittent faint brown stains consistent with drips marks (almost the same color as the canvas and barely perceptible), for example, one to the left of the figure in the black veil measuring approx 1 1/2 inch long. With a 1 inch long horizontal mark, whitish in color, to the left of the figure in the red sash - this is possibly a scuff or possibly stray paint original to the working method of the artist. In overall good original condition.
