The untitled painting depicts a water lily on a midnight-blue background, with a ghostly pair of male and female nudes emerging in a swirl from the center of the flower. It's a motif Quaintance has used in other works.
The dimensions of the canvas are 30x39 inches; the description reads, "The painting was acquired from the artist in 1937, thence by descent to current consignor. It was in the collection of Dr. Annella Brown of Boston, a prominent surgeon and art deco collector. Signed & dated 1937."
The signature is vertical and appears at the right edge of the canvas at the bottom of the blue area. The date is directly below it. If you view this images at maximum size, both are clearly readable.
Follow-up: The painting sold for $2500 plus buyer fees and premiums.
