Tony Shafrazi Gallery, New York Brooke Alexander Gallery, New York Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Chicago Private Collection, West Palm Beach (acquired from the above in March 1982) Private Collection, New York
This work is in very good condition overall. The top and bottom edges of the sheet are deckled and there is a slight undulation to the sheet. There are several pinpoint black media accretions in the white outer border that all appear to be from the time of execution and inherent to the artist’s working method. Under very close inspection, there is a 1-inch long repaired tear on the bottom edge of the sheet approximately 16-inches from the right corner. The sheet is hinged verso to the mat intermittently along all the edges. Framed under Plexiglas.
