An oil painting on panel with applied paper accents by 20th century American artist Evelyn Marx (Cincinnati, 1901 – 1996). The painting depicts a group of three mid-century style decanters on an abstract tabletop. Lustrous liquids within the decanters have been painted using marbling techniques. The painting is signed to the lower right, but is only visible when the piece is removed from the frame. The painting is presented in a composite frame with cast embellishments, gold tone finish, and a hanging wire.
