Pastel on paper, 1969. 457x603 mm; 18x23 3/4 inches. Signed, Vytlacil, and dated, 1969, lower right.

Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist by the current owner, 1975.

In the summer of 1975, the current owner of this drawing drove Vaclav Vytlacil to Martha's Vineyard where the artist and his wife owned a home. As a gesture of gratitude, Vytlacil asked his driving companion to select a drawing from a group of works the following day. This pastel was chosen specifically because the recipient had enjoyed a dinner at Menemsha the evening prior.
