Recently (January 2014) a chalk drawing, Afternoon Shadows, of the same abandon road appeared for sale and sold on ebay. Below is a side by side comparison of the two pieces.
This painting was sold in December 2012 at auction from the Karges Fine Art Gallery in California. It has returned to Massachusetts.
