Gouache on paper, 23 1/4×31 1/4 (59×79·5).
Presented by Mr Philip Goldberg 1968.

The artist wrote (20 November 1968): ‘[To1101] is more complex than the general run of my current gouaches-which pleases me: but it is second to none in richness (perhaps one shouldn't say this sort of thing oneself, though!?)’
