This original oil on canvas, c. 1950, by Robert Mokowitz measures 12 x 16 inches and is signed on the lower right and is framed. Moskowitz was heavily influenced by abstract expressionism and the work of Jasper Johns. Studying at the Pratt Institute of Art under Bradley Walker Tomlin and Adolph Gottlieb, he worked mainly in oils and pastels with architectural themes. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington.
