This collage by Nora Unwin measures 15 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches and is matted and framed. Created in 1972, Unwin gives the viewer a look past a rocky seawall to the water's distant horizon line. Her use of cloth, textured paper, glue and colored ink skillfully adhered to a painted background was one of her favorite mediums to display her genius, giving the viewer this three-dimensional effect. Signed and dated in the lower right corner.
