Lot Essay

The present work was painted in the hamlet of Bearsville, New York and according to Robert Hobbs, "depends as much on Gauguin's Jacob Wrestling with the Angel as it does on direct observation." ("Sally Avery: the Other Avery," Women's Art Journal, vol. 8, no. 2, Fall 1987-Winter 1988, p. 11)
