Description

Charlie Safford shows a moment - an abstracted, seated figure dangles a piece of mistletoe, and presumedly offers a Christmas interlude, over the head of a seductively reclining figure. A couple of bottles have fortified the merrymakers.

This proof impression is dedicated "To Harry", craftsman Harry Dixon, brother of painter Maynard Dixon.
