This watercolor by Robert Colescott is a scarce early work on paper from his Portland period. After completing an MA at the University of California at Berkley in 1952, Colescott accepted a teaching position at Portland State University, where he was on staff from 1957 to 1966. While living in Portland, he was represented by Fountain Gallery, where his work was included in the gallery's inaugural exhibition and he was given his first solo show in 1963.
