CATALOGUE NOTE
In 1982, Tooker was approached by a print publisher who was developing a series of prints to benefit the Metropolitan Opera. Tooker chose to illustrate a scene from Giuseppe Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera. The present work is the original oil that served as inspiration for the portfolio of prints, which now reside in the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis, Missouri.
