Two horizontally oriented trapezoids intersect a vertical trapezoid, all in sculpted and painted (black, red, orange, yellow, white, green) in oil on epoxy bas-relief against a black, white, blue, and green oil-painted field, all of which is laid down on a mahogany skin, which is in turn laid down on plywood. It is signed on the reverse side: 'Laddie John Dill 1999 "Death in Venice"'.

Laddie John Dill, twice awarded the National Endowment for the Arts, Artist's Fellowship, as well as the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, has works in over 26 major museum collections, internationally. Beginning with his first and fifth one man shows at the Sonnabend Gallery in New York, in 1971 & 1972, Mr. Dill has had an illustrious career with his 'signature' mixed media works of cement, glass, and natural oxide pigments on wood foundation, as well as his monumental metal sculptures in public and private locations around the world. This oil painting in relief represents a brief departure from Mr. Dill's renowned multi-media works.
