George Ford Morris (American, 1873 ÔÇô 1960)
Original Gouache on paper. 14.5ÔÇØ T x 12ÔÇØ W. This unique, unfinished piece depicting polo ponies features George Ford MorrisÔÇÖ own penciled notes to himself. Appears to be one of MorrisÔÇÖ earlier works. It is assumed the notes he made refer to items he planned to change in the finished product. The notes read as follows: ÔÇ£WaitingÔÇØ. ÔÇ£Simms sitting on ground smoking pipe with dog in lower left hand corner.ÔÇØ Good condition with minor staining on lower right side.
