    This etched picture on mirror measures 50cm x 60cm discovered while emptying a property. I have not seen one online and wish to know its history.
    The two pictures are nearly identical except they face each other when put side by side. They are both etched in black and their eyes are of blue material.
    I would like to know who the lady might be and when it came into existence.

      Looks like the work of Patrick Nagel from the 1980's. Here is a link to wikipedia.

      Yes Nagel and her name is Rio ;) He did a series of these paintings and they went off the charts! He passed in 1984 I believe.

      Thanks for the information supplied, but who did the silver mirror etching is what I really want to know.... did he do that also?

      That I do not know. It would be like a silk screen type application, an obvious guess on my part.
