MORE INFORMATION:


"In the summer of 1928, Evergood visited Woodstock, and returned with a substantial body of work, including a double portrait of M.T. Florinsky and D.S. Mirsky, two Russian emigres... This painting is among the very first by Philip to exhibit the naive and direct characterization that would soon become Evergood's trademark." (excerpt from Philip Evergood: Never Separate from the Heart)
