Another Fuertes on eBay

I just checked in on yet another Fuertes original on eBay. There has definitely been quite a flurry of pieces up for auction of late. There are two sketches on there now to check out if you are interested. The piece that just sold was quite nice, albeit a bit simple, and very likely a compositional study. After I spotted it I wondered if it might have been a study for the oil in the Fuertes room panels. I ventured out to take a look and indeed, the positioning of the male is quite similar as in this small watercolor, the female is quite different though. The final price just about an hour ago was $1500, a very good bargain for an original.
