This painting was a garage sale find, ten years ago and that whole story can be seen here. It’s provided two people on this earth their Andy Warhol-divined fifteen minutes of fame. The work about went through a major conservation having suffered neglect, abuse, water damage and god knows what other unspeakable acts. The original canvas was able to be preserved with strip-lining the sides and it is in fighting shape. The frame is a hand-leafed reproduction frame which we created from scratch in our studio.
