Hand-signed in pencil lower right bottom and numbered lower left Limited-edition of 120 Published by Maeght, Paris Two swirls, one blue and one red, unite at a single focal point. The red swirl surfaces from the bottom of the composition while the blue swirl sweeps in from the right. Uniting at a single, circular point, the two swirls combined create a tri-colored wave of red, white, and blue. The elegantly curved, bold black lines both divide and unite, separating the individual colors yet flowing seamlessly together at the point of this wave.
