Unfortunate and sad news on the printing plate; it was taken from a storage facility where i kept it. And so - in the remote chance that anyone would come across it one way or another - I miss my pla...
Thanks gwjstubbs, Thanks for the comment. Yes, still have the plate.
hi AzTom, Good points - it's for the N-S traveler - and you would have to be on a pretty narrow route for this to work. Here's what I found on it: Title: Road map of United States, prepared especi...
ho2cultcha, very nice indeed. If you ask me, i'd say it's authentic - no doubt about it. :-).
ho2cultcha, what a nice story and thanks for sharing! If possible, it would be great to see some pics of your sculpture on the forum. Have you ever been interested in exploring it further? As far as t...
Mcheconi, so nothing new really on this - Christie's are still doing there thing. Which I'd think is a good thing. Unless the specialist that got assigned to it is on vacation. :-). I did find this li...
Hi Mcheconi, good to hear from you. No definite news on the Duchamp plate, i'm afraid. I contacted a bunch of museums, but they just referred me to professional appraisers and I haven't gone that rout...
Got the right person to contact at the Museum of Modern Art in Philadelphia, and awaiting response. The referrer at another department at the museum called it "a potentially very exciting find!". :-)
So, reading, and learning more about this. When plates have been used for an edition they are not destroyed, per se, but rather 'scratched' to indicate that "the plate has been cancelled". Lets say th...
i've drawn a blank on this today. I focused a great deal on trying to find any building that could have been the inspiration for this. The closest I've come is more abstract posters/prints for the Chi...
I agree. if this is indeed an authentic plate for one of the 4 editions, then i'm sure there's an interest for it out there. I mean, how could there not be? :-). I'm waiting to hear back from Christie...
-mcheconi, the duchamp plate photos have been sent to some additional select professional places for review; so we'll see if something turns up there. From what I understand, plates like this are supp...
And thank you all for the effort and interest!
I like the way this is going. To look closer at the stars is a good idea. And it feels like this building is out there somewhere - or something that resembles it. Of course, it could just be an abstra...
Zowie - you are absolutely correct. these make awesome wall hanging pieces. I love mixed media in general, and to me this probably looks cooler than the actual print that came from it. But it's still ...
I can only agree with Vetraio - excellent research on this, and very helpful. I did come home with a whole lot of plates from this estate sale, even though this is obviously the one that really stands...
Added a high res. scan of the signature. :-)
mcheconi - thank you so much for the awesome information, I really appreciate it. It is a beyond intriguing piece, and I actually didn't see what it was before I brought it home. I found it here in th...
fantastic. I looked up Robin's website. Really nice stuff.
mcheconi - thanks! I uploaded a pic of the signature. It is REALLY small and (as you can see), i'm having problems with getting a good clear shot of it. Obviously, it's mirrored, since it's a print pl...
