Miriam Latour Shapiro began painting at the late age of 70 years old. The result was a remarkable series of works, documented in a monograph by Colleen Becker called "Mysterious Late Excellence", an elusive quality that someones graces an older artist, as John Berryman wrote memorably of William Carlos Williams. The present work is in excellent condition, and was a gift of the artist's daughter. It is reproduced in a full page in the catalogue "Mysterious Late Excellence" (shown), which features critical essays by Colleen Becker. In the original artist's wood frame. Excellent provenance.

Signature: signed in acrylic paint on the recto (front).
