Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Blue and teal passages of pastel-like color drape across tan ground. In a circular negative area left by several larger, colored areas, there is a figural outline with a swath of pink at its center. At the CL, 2 small flat areas of red, fuschia, and pink proceed downward with the motion of the other lines.
