In a sense this painting is a modern trompe l'oeil. It fools the eye into thinking the stripes are applied color tape. They are not. When first looking at paintings of this type by McVicker, one is tempted to try and lift the edge of the tape to see if it is real. The artist has left no trace of brushstrokes on the canvas, further inviting the inquiry of the illusion of reality.
Estimate: $3,000 - $4,000.
Excellent condition, period frame designed by artist in excellent condition
