An interesting painted study of hands, including of one pointing with extended finger and another clasping a stylus, the disembodied hands all floating in the space and offerings thus a somewhat surreal effect.

Some scratches and abrasions to surface, overall very good condition. 13 x 14.5 inches; 33 x 37 Cm.  (20699)
