Signed "Magritte" in blue within the composition l.r., identified on a "Certificat
d'Authenticite" issued by Isy Brachot, Galerie Isy Bracho, Bruxelles, Belgium, affixed to the frame backing paper.
Pencil on paper, 8 1/4 x 5 3/8 in. (21.0 x 13.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Sheet laid down on mat board support and centered within a hand-drawn rectangle, right edge of sheet irregularly cut/torn.
Estimate $4,000-6,000

There are no further condition issues to note.

With two computer generaled labels marked EGFA, likely Eric Gillis Fine Art, Brussels, Belgium, located on the frame backing paper, and with a printed label from Kew Gallery, Inc., New York, also on the frame backing.

The dimensions given in the certificate of authenticity (19 x 13 cm) appear to be image size, as opposed to the exact sheet size.
