JAN GROOVER | UNTITLED
large-format chromogenic print, signed, dated, numbered '215.1,' and editioned '5/5' in ink in the margin, mounted to aluminum, framed, Ginny Williams Collection and Richard Green Gallery, Los Angeles, labels on the reverse, 1988
27 by 34½ in. (68.6 by 87.6 cm.)
This chromogenic print is in generally very good condition. Although the colors appear robust and saturated, this work may have faded slightly as the edges of the image are very faintly darker where the photograph is covered by a mat. There is a very faint impression in a few places along the edges of the image where the print has been in contact with the overmat.
'215.1' is written a second time in blue ink in the lower left margin corner, as well as an illegible inscription in black ink. The lower margin is abraded in several places.
