Zach Feuer Gallery, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner in 2007
"I don’t write out stories in the way a writer would; the situations are very loose. I never want the viewer to have to know the whole story to “get” the painting...Often I will invent hypothetical situations that can act as surrogate situations for conditions that I am thinking about and that I always feel are logical.” Dana Schutz
This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of light wear and handling to the sides of the canvas. Some of the threads from the underlying fabric are visible. There is a pinpoint accretion along the bottom edge, which fluoresces brightly under Ultraviolet light. Under Ultraviolet light inspection there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
