VERSO
Signed and titled

According to Delano biographer, Richard G. Bowman, “One little-known fact is that Delano identified some of his painting as being the finest in execution and quality by putting a small red dot in the corner of the painting. One dealer and collector, who worked with him and knew him for many years, told me this. He also said that the placement of two red dots, one in each lower corner of a painting, meant Delano considered the painting to be a ‘masterpiece.’ (To date, I have only seen six paintings with two red dots.)”
