lower right: Adolph Gottlieb 1935 [1]

Inscription Notes

[1] Although the painting is dated 1935, the Gottlieb Foundation believes the painting was executed in 1934. It was included in an exhibition held in the summer of 1934 at the Uptown Gallery in New York, and the style and type of signature matches those made by the artist in the 1960s. It is thought that the artist signed and dated the painting in the 1960s for the Levy family, and did not accurately remember the year he painted it. The Corcoran Gallery of Art corrected the date of the painting in their records in 2011.
