Provenance: 
Will and Elena Barnet.
Notes: 

Will Barnet's career spanned nearly eight decades during which he successively embraced different styles, abstract and figurative. This drawing reflects Barnet's involvement with the so-called Indian Space Painters, a group of artists who set out to create a specifically American abstract style by looking for inspiration in Native American art. Fond of using found paper as a support, Barnet created this composition over a used envelope.
