Crayon on paper drawing of red tulips in a glass vase, 14 3/4" by 10 3/4" (18 1/2" by 14" in simple wood strip frame), signed at lower right with monogram or conjoined initials, and dated there 4-5-83. Something about the work reminds of David Hockney, but this artist is unidentified. I believe it is of European origin but cannot be certain of that. There is some writing in pencil on the reverse, possibly in a foreign language, but it is hard to decipher. The paper is a creamy ivory and has oxidized unevenly in a few places, and there are a few stray marks or stains that do not amount to much. All in all this is a very nice drawing by a skilled hand. When I took this apart to look for more information inside I found it difficult to reassemble it but all parts are available.
