It is rare to have the final painting but also previous studies of the painting… I have had the chance to find, years after I found the painting, a stunning watercolor preparing the painting.
The painting is on the last photo but also visible with details on this site.
Offered separately or together, no need to say that I hardly invite you to buy the two of them…
Price for the watercolor only: € 650,-
Price for the watercolor and the painting: € 2.800,-
