DeGrazia often said he dreamt his artwork before he created it. It was his habit to retire early, sleep a few hours, and rise at 1 or 2am to work in the solitude of the late night hours. In many cases, DeGrazia noted time of night next to his signature, lending these small works large significance. These Midnight Sketches give us an opportunity to see DeGrazia’s vision directly after he dreamt it – before other artistic and practical concerns took over. This double signed midnight sketch depicts and woman riding a horse in the isolated desert.
