Observations

We know of the existence of this painting thanks to the original period photograph, preserved in the archives of the CED, from the exhibition held at the Julien Levy Gallery in New York during April and May 1941. The exhibition subsequently travelled to the Arts Club of Chicago, at which point we lose track of the work.
