STEVE MARTIN, BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA
mural-sized archival pigment print, with edition '5/10' in pencil on the reverse, 1981, printed in 2010; accompanied by the photographer's 'The Master Set' label, signed in ink (2)
37½ by 37½ in. (95.3 by 95.3 cm.)
This archival pigment print is in generally excellent condition. The colors appear rich and saturated with no signs of fading. Under very close inspection in raking light, the following are visible: a faint handling crease in the upper right quadrant, and very faint diagonal impressions in the white and black margin corner, not affecting the image.
The overall tonality is richer than the illustration in the printed catalogue. The highlights have a blue/gray undertone.
