Nobody else you know will have this work - uniquely hand signed!
Not too many - if any - of these were hand signed by Chuck Close as is the present work. We've never seen another anywhere in the world at this time. This is a limited edition numbered offset lithograph - rarely to market, featuring Chuck Close's portrait of Barack Obama, to commemorate President Obama's 2013 Inauguration. It is, however, exceptionally, hand signed by Chuck Close; the regular edition was not signed. This print is very limited edition - numbered 396/2013 (though 2013 numbered prints were made, it is rarely seen on the marketplace.) The print itself was produced as a numbered edition - plate signed by Barack Obama. However, Chuck Close personally signed this for the present owner, so provenance is direct and irrefutable. None of the other prints in this edition were signed; making this hand signed, limited edition print historic and highly collectible. We have never any other editions of this print hand signed by Chuck Close - and it he is unlikely to be signing any more.
