Scroll: 72” x 17 3/4” (painting: 30 1/4” x 13”). Generally good overall condition with minor soiling and signs of wear consistent with its age. The cream brocade mounting is slightly soiled. There are a few creases. This painting is from an old Texas collection. It belonged to his father, who was an antique dealer in Palm Springs, CA.
