Description:

Meg Governo (American, 20th/21st Century)

Two Works: Eyes Open; Eyes Shut. Unsigned. Offset on acetate (or similar) mounted to canvas, image sizes 18 5/8 x 28 in., framed. Condition: Tears to supporting canvas along upper edges of acetate on both, not examined out of frames.
Estimate $400-600

The sheets of acetate are affixed to the linen at the top corners and at the center of the top edge. The horizontal tears, which fall along the weave of the linen, are at these points, presumably due to the weight of the acetate. Yellowish discoloration in u.l. of Eyes Open, probably from adhesive.
