Gift of Katherine Westphal

An abstract field of black block-printed designs scattered on a white background, interupted by a section of amorphous shapes hand-painted in blue and patterned with French-knots, leaving the overall impression of ancient architecture and an inlet. Block printed text in the lower right reads: "when smashing monuments save the bases they may come in handy." Backing is a solid golden rod color.
