Provenance: Presumed to have come from the private collection of Vincent Friia, San Francisco, Ca. Acquired we believe from the latter by the consignor's family, sometime before 1997. Later to the present owner (Dallas, Texas).
Lot Note: This lot was originally catalogued in our December 2017 auction. At the time, Preston Hall Gallery had a vested financial interest in the lot and the consignor withdrew it from the sale. It is now being reoffered.
