Brown and grey gouache, 20 x 15" signed in margin, and verso. Very good overall: board is somewhat toned with age; some edge wear. Archivally matted and has a narrow gilt frame.
The title means that Clarke was inspired by the richly printed roto-gravure sections of the Sunday newspapers which would have a special section devoted to celebrities and social events, and a special red-brown printer’s ink was used. Marginal title in Clarke's lettering: “40 inch Crepe de Chine” indicates the type of material and weave. Exhibited: won a $100 “honorable mention” prize for originality.
