Fine Art, High Heel Shoes, Yale Student, Vintage Watercolor, 1949


High Heels
American: 1949
Signed and dated: Rycroft ’49
Watercolor on paper
16 x 12 inches, overall

This eccentric painting is a humorous glimpse into one man’s fantasies. It shows a woman’s calves, in spike heels and seamed hose, framing a park scene and a multi-colored cartoon caterpillar emerging from the ground beneath her feet. A Yale student smoking a pipe approaches in the distance.

Condition: very good, with usual expected toning of paper.
