  • PROVENANCE:
    With Joe Wolpe, Cape Town
    Purchased from the above by the current owner in the 1960s

    Irma Stern travelled to Europe many times throughout her artistic career and visited the French Riviera in early 1965. The artist's post-war European works display her strong interest in places with a distinctive character such as Venice and the Cote d'Azur.

    The present lot bears a strong similarity to the oil painting Winter on the Riviera (illustrated in Arnold, 1995, p.43).
