Calling All Art Experts...
I bought a hand colored etching...
I believe it is an artist's proof. There is no run number on it. Sorry about the three fingers in the middle of the pond. Yup. They're mine.
If it were one of a series of prints, it would have a 1/30 kind of number. The first number is the number of the print and the second one is how many were printed.
How do I know this? I took several etching classes in college. We had to pull proofs of our prints. They were never numbered. Only prints that we did a series of printings were numbered like this.
I am having trouble even deciphering this one. I have the L. B.....Then it goes down hill from there.
I don't really care if it is a masterpiece or not. I like it and it is already hanging on the bedroom wall.
A couple of seconds after I took this photo, the bottle on top of the bookcase fell on Zar's head and at the same time, Tessie mysteriously disappeared.
I left. I am not going to get into the middle of this. The two of them can fight it out until I get another one made and then they are going to be sitting on either side of a row of books. I will not have to worry then. To each his own....
Back to work. See you tomorrow.
