Portrait of Coo Shibasaki on a beach in Takasago. My workshop diary of July 24, 1974 gives some details of the composition: “Coo makes his little panther, lying on the beach by the sea, fingers fan in the sand. The air burning all around, smoking dreams to bandage the old rocks … Beautiful enchantments with red reflections, an imperial sweetness of the foraging bee, that slightly bent leg, that foot abandoned to the extremes, that brown thigh on the white sand ”. 

Amber painting on canvas mounted on panel. Varnished and ready to hang.
