PROVENANCE: Caspar Reiff, composer (1971-present); then to current owner.


“The air rushed over him and he shut his eyes as off rose fifteen great birds from the mountain’s side. The sun was still close to the eastern edge of things. The morning was cool, and mists were in the valleys and hollows and twined here and there about peaks and pinnacles of the hills. Bilbo opened an eye to peep and saw that the birds were already high up and the world was far away, and the mountains were falling back behind them in the distance. He shut his eyes and held on tighter. “Don’t pinch!” said his eagle.”
