Blue Monday

Collage on canvas with acrylic paint (11 x 14")

 

"Blue Monday" was laundry day, named for the blueing agent added to the water to counteract the yellowing of fabric by the soap. In the background of the picture is a copy of a ticket from the American Palace Steam Laundry, Buffalo, N. Y., dated 1907.
