From the estate of the artist, estate stamp verso. The Barnetts' apartment in downtown Worcester, MA - 19B Elm Street - had one very large room which served as a studio as well as a dining and living area. In this painting, the artist has stepped back to depict - probably as reflected in a mirror - a still life setup with draperies illuminated by a spotlight, an easel, and the artist's wife Elizabeth at a table in the right background. There is a play on "cubist vision" in that the still life objects - probably a china gravy boat and a skull - are presented as though they were already cubist objects even before being painted.
