 "I know very little about the painting," Mark Pollack said of this oil on masonite, signed "MR" and dated 1960. "I bought it sometime in the late 90s in Brussels when I was there attending a trade show. I was wandering around the city on the free afternoon I had before the show opened, and came across a little ‘second-hand’ store that had a lot of cool things in the window, including this painting. Unfortunately the store was closed at the time, but I walked by one evening after work and by chance found the owner there. The owner knew nothing more about the painting, but I loved it regardless and left with it under my arm wrapped in nothing more than brown paper. Thankfully it was bought pre-9/11 and the flight attendants on the trip home were actually helpful in finding a safe place for it during the flight."
