Remarks
This work, which depicts the lobby of a theater or hotel, relates closely to a canvas from this period (fig. 1). Another closely related canvas depicting the same lobby but with a different arrangement of figures (fig. 2) may have been exhibited in December 1937, indicating a likely execution date of c. 1937 for the current work.
