"The Folly of Time"

1960, 24" x 30

This painting's provenance began in an dark and abandoned basement apartment. The landlord had no information concerning its origin. It subsequently came into my collection as the result of a complicated trade involving a month's rent and a vintage sectional couch. This work is so frightening that I was only able to display it for a very short time before being completely creeped out. A severe case of the willies set in every time I walked past. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the painting's origin and the lone inscription on the back of the canvas bearing the above title further increased my apprehension. Eventually I removed the noxious clown from our walls.
