HERES AN IMPORTANT SIGNED MODERN ABSTRACT ENAMEL-ON-COPPER PLAQUE / PAINTING BY SCHENECTADY, NEW YORK ARTIST VIRGINIA SALEMME!

The congruent wide undulating lines are the existential reverberations of the man's soul.Signed V Salemme in post-firing gold in the bottom right corner and there is an original paper label on the backside that reads Virginia Salemme Enamels Schenectady, N.
