Title: Study for 'Mobile with Penetrating Spheres' 1963 - an original signed abstract collage on paper, unframed
Description: The present work is a painted collage on paper signed by the artist lower right and titled as above and dated 1963. The artist has used a good quality sheet of off-white paper and has then added the cut-out shapes, namely two pieces of shaped paper painted black and then four pieces of thin card, cut into circular shapes and painted in an ultramarine colour. The six pieces were then fixed to the artist's paper and lines in ink added as a border. There are no tears to the paper but it does have some marks and relatively minor stains. The areas of collage are reasonably secure. The two black painted areas show some signs of wear. The piece is unframed but once framed should display well...
Size: About 22.0 x 15.4 inches overall paper size; unframed
