AP 17 aside from edition of 18; Rare Artist's Proof, aside from the regular edition of 108
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, publisher 
 
The work was created to benefit Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City. It has excellent provenance, as it was acquired from the collection of Delmar Hendricks, the very first director of the legendary Vera List print program at Lincoln Center, who ran the influential program for decades. Robert Longo gave this rare Artist's Proof (one of only 18)as a gift to Delmar. 

This image is part of Longo's series Monsters (2000-2004), which was featured at the 2004 Whitney Biennial. In it, he depicts massive waves breaking with expressionistic, sweeping gestures of his hand. The virtuosity of this hand is evident in all of Longo's compositions; oftentimes, his drawings are almost impossible to distinguish from his photographic works. 
 
Recent Sales Comparable: (Note that the comparable is for a work from the regular edition of 108. Whereas, the present work is a rare proof from the edition of only 18.
