Study for a portrait of the Vogels, with Herbert in the foreground and Dorothy visible behind him to the left. Line drawing in pencil with erasure marks. The portrait is sketched out in a square drawn on the sheet, and signed in the lower right corner. Notes to himself include: “Dot & Herb position?” (lower left corner), “proportion & lining up of the chins, eyes” (upper right corner).
This study for a portrait of the art collectors Dorothy and Herb Vogel shows them in profile from the shoulders up, facing left.
An angular bottle executed in two tones of white stands tall just to the (viewer's) right of center. To its left is a stack of gray drinking cups. Irregular blocks of various sizes and colors make up the rest of the field.
A Cubist still life, depicting a bottle and drinking cups. The perspective is mildly fragmented and, through the use of the blocks of color as well as the blocky objects, the space is flattened into discrete planes.
