Original watercolor by the Canadian artist Rolph scarlett (1889-1984). After having met Hilla Rebay, first director of the Guggenheim museum, he became acquinted with the nonobjective works of Rudolf bauer and Kandinsky further refining his own abstract style. Scarlett often signed his work in two places, allowing the owner to hang the work in the preferred orientation, as in this example. His works can be found in museumcollections worldwide, like Guggenheim, The whitney museum and The M etropolitan museum of art. This work is bought by the previous owner in New York in the nineties.
