signed Graves and dated '63, l.r.
tempera on paper
Condition Note: Work was not examined out of frame (for fear of damaging frame)--edges show clearly. In fairly good condition; upper and left edges of sheet have faded to a light brown; sheet apears to be hinged to backing; edges are intact--they are a bit rough (not a condition problem--paper is handmade); pinhole at lower left corner
