Notes

There is an inscription on the stretcher which says ‘Belle of Portugal Roses’ in the artist’s handwriting and another which reads:

            ‘Bought Sotheby’s 30/- May 10th 1933

The words ‘by A Muller-Ury’ are probably in the artist’s handwriting.  On a small sticker on the stretcher is written the number C8042.
