Measurements: 54 square inches.
Numbered on the Certificate of Authenticity from the edition of 650, which is also signed by Frank Stella in ink. Buyer will receive a unique work, numbered from the edition of 650. The one shown has already been sold and for reference only - yours will be a different number; also in mint condition as issued by the artist and publisher.
Clients have framed this magnificent silkscreen in a large plexi or perspex box and hung it in their homes - and others have worn it as a shawl or given it as a gift. Some have done both. Those who choose to frame the work, also make sure the frame affixes the embossed Certificate of Authenticity in a protective sleeve on the verso (back) - not just for provenance, but it has its own value as it is hand signed by Frank Stella as well.
