Long-term Loan from the Estate of Boris Blick, 2015
In a modest room, three men sit around a table on which documents rest, ready to be signed. The man in the middle gestures persuasively towards the man on the right, dressed in a red cap, who appears to be deep in thought. A woman lingers by the doorway, holding a child with one arm and placing a hand on her husband's shoulder as she looks over the scene.
Back of the piece reads, "The Hard Bargain from the engraving by Flachenekker, Munich".
