Signed, dated and titled verso
This piece is part of a suite of watercolors that take their inspiration from music, namely improvisational jazz.
The most amazing aspect of this watercolor lies in the age of the artist when it was created (18 years old), as well as its advanced Modernist style. Suffice it to say, these early Preusser watercolors represent the first non-objective paintings in Texas and possibly the Southwest. They predate the Abstract Expressionists such as Pollock and DeKooning by several years.
Provenance: Estate of Robert Preusser
