Artists Proofs are traditionally the first prints produced from any work and are of high quality, being separate from any subsequent run of Limited Editions. They are normally signed and annotated by the artist and then retained for the artist's personal use. Because there are very few copies specifically marked as Artists Proof, they are desirable to serious collectors and therefore command a higher price than normal Limited Editions.
Framed behind glass.
Print measures 13" x 10". Overall framed size is 22" x 18".
