Octave Landuyt : Essential Surface #2

Essential Surface by Octave Landuyt 1957 :
 the pedigree of a painting...
The backside of this painting shows the journey this work has made. Last exhibited @ Albert Landry Galleries in 1961 where it was sold to Hollywood actors Zachary Scott and his second wife Ruth Ford.
Ruth Ford died at the age of 98 in 2010 and left everything to her butler who sold her New York 'Dakota' apartment and art collection.
The painting made it's way back to Belgium...
