Notes/Literature: Since his passing in 2016, Earl McGrath's (1931-2016) behind the scenes influence in the art and entertainment world has become a source of legend. McGrath was a Hollywood script writer turned Atlantic Records music executive turned blue chip art gallery owner. His wife, Camilla Pecci-Blunt McGrath was an Italian countess whose family were art patrons of the European Avante Garde. Together they quietly supported the careers of dozens of up and coming artists, who's work forms the body of their eclectic collection.


Good, spots on glass, possibly very faint edge nick on lower sheet, likely later print, not examine out of frame
