David Stern (American, b. 1956)
Self Portrait. Unsigned on the recto, identified and dated "2/19/97" on a label from Rosenberg & Kaufman Fine Art, New York, affixed to the frame backing. Mixed media on paper, 29 3/4 x 22 in., framed. Condition: Rippling, not examined out of frame.
The sheet is "floated" within the mat so that all the edges are visible. There are deckled edges to the paper on two sides. The work appears to be hinged at the corners of the top on the reverse, and it is professionally framed. Because the frame was not opened during cataloging, we cannot report if the work is signed and dated on the reverse, however the date is provided on the label from Rosenberg & Kaufman on the frame backing.
Framed dimensions are 37 3/8 x 29 3/8 in.
