On the verso it is written: To Kathleen, what if the soul can fling the dust aside and naked on the air of heaven ride, wert not a shame for him, in this clay carcass so crippled to abide. This quote is from Omar Khayyam, the 11th century Persian poet and mathematician. I could not find much information on the painter Jimmie Carbery, but perhaps you are familiar with the artist? Approximately 21 1/4 x 25 1/4 inches including frame.Actual artwork is approximately 18 x 22 inches. There is mild areas of light paint loss throughout, and one small 1-inch tear in the upper right of the canvas please see photos. This painting would be easily restorable, and would be absolutely worth further conservation. Please check my other listings for more wonderful and unique artworks!
