A watercolor on paper of people conversing and socializing in a square or city street, the sheet 15" by 11", the drawing 12 1/2" by 8 1/2" (22 1/2" by 18" in newish gold framing), the work indecipherably signed in red below the linen mat. The signature looks like "Arnold Balg(xxxxx)" or any number of variations of that, but to date I have been unable to tie this to a listed artist. The work came from the liquidated collection of eastern Pennsylvania theatre owner mogul Merton Shapiro (also of Beverly Hills and Goleta, CA), that collection containing a large number of works by listed artists, some quite important. At some point evidently the collection was evaluated by Bonhams auction house in Los Angeles, as is evidenced by the remaining old labels affixed to the backing.
