ship in silhouette
This ship is part of a large untitled tempera harbor montage painted by Flora on a slab of masonite around 1951. How "large"? How much of a "part"? After isolating the above detail, I copied and pasted it horizontally and vertically over the full original to figure out how many elements this size could fit in the complete image field. Outcome: the above detail represents 1/52nd of the entire work.
