This lithograph is by well know and listed South American/American artist Julio Alpuy. It is signed and dated in pencil and the letters AP are also in pencil, denoting an artist proof. The piece was framed in 1975 and it still has the same sticker of that date. The piece is in good condition with no visible deterioration.

Alpuy returned to Montevideo to teach and fulfill several mural commissions but left again in 1957. He traveled to Chile, then lived in Bogota, Columbia, and Caracas. In 1961 he emigrated to the U.S. and established his residence in New York City.
