Description: 

This abstract original print, through the use of basic shapes and color, finds an aesthetic balance of form and design. Cubist elements are significant to this work, by artist Sonia Aimee Hansen, that were typical of the early twentieth century. Hues of blue are prevalent to signify the ground, horizon, and apparent automobile that appears in the foreground. Black is the additional part of the color composition, forming the architectural structure in the background and it accentuates portions of the automobile. A combination of blue and black are used to cross hatch the ground. White is the other color element used in this work, creating a luminous effect within the depicted structure, and portion of the ground. Located at bottom right is the artist signature and numbered date "50". In the lower left the numbered limited edition of this work indicates 96/250.
