Acrylic 39"x42" framed. Number 85/90.
I do not know who owned it prior to my purchase; however, based on the condition and how the artwork is preserved, I believe it was on exhibit at one point in time.
The appraised work is a 1982 color silkscreen executed by American artist Patrick Nagel (1945-1984) titled “Lori.” The print depicts a sensuous, confident female figure who directly addresses the viewer. Nagel was well-known for his distinctive illustrations, which typically employed a graphic, highly stylized aesthetic and were often featured in Playboy magazine. He received a BFA from California State University and began working as an artist and illustrator in 1976, gaining commissions from Playboy and other publications. The appraised work's size, composition, medium and condition (based on images provided), as well as the artist's current auction market were taken into consideration when determining the estimate. In many cases, pricing for similar examples available on the primary (retail) market vary, and are often higher than secondary (auction) market examples.
