I have always wondered if the reason she signed it twice was because she was sampling the various beverages and kinda forgot that she had already signed it once. Kalisch was noted primarily as a cubist and a colorist, and those two attributes of her work are very much in evidence in this painting. The painting overall including the frame is 28" inches by 22" inches. The painting itself measure 20" inches by 16" inches. It is composed of oil on canvas board and is signed in both the lower left and also the lower right.
I have always thoughts this is because the artist must have been trying the beverages while she painted it and then forgot she signed it and did it again. The frame is a very nice gray with a linen mat. The painting and frame are in excellent condition.
The linen does have a small discoloration on it, check my photos. This painting will look great in both your home, den or bar Jean Kalisch was born in Japan in the 1912. As a child, she was give instruction in Chinese calligraphy.In the 1950s, she moved to California with her husband, Jules.
