BUT HONEYED LOOKS BETRAY
chromogenic print, framed, a Staley-Wise Gallery label on the reverse, 2002, no. 2 in an edition of 10; accompanied by a David LaChapelle Studio label, signed in ink (2)
15½ by 23½ in. (39.4 by 59.7 cm.)
This chromogenic print appears to be in generally excellent condition. The colors remain bright and saturated, with no apparent fading. Upon close examination in high raking light, the following are visible: a bit of faint rubbing where the overmat meets the print, and a pinpoint-sized deposit of indeterminate nature in the lower left quadrant.
'SW 34956' is written in an unidentified hand in ink on the reverse.
