Untitled (Richard Prince 1995 joke painting detail / Barbara Gladstone Gallery) T-shirt
- New York: Maker unknown, circa 1996-2002. (image: 8 1/4 x 10 in., 21 x 25.2 cm). Assumed unauthorized gallery exhibition souvenir t-shirt. Heat transferred illustration and text on 100% cotton (apparently worn; laundered upon acquisition; mild age and perspiration toning; corners of image area abraded but relatively stable presently; else in very good condition overall). The painted text in the joke painting was mirrored upon transfer and hence more for the enjoyment of the wearer (viewed in a mirror). The original Richard Prince painting "Untitled (A girl walks), 1995" has been radically cropped from a vertical format and only 1/4 of the artist's composition remains (see the last fig. for a detail image of the painting's joke). A possible source image for the iron-on transfer is a 1996 exhibition catalogue (Young Americans: New American Art in the Saatchi Collection). A fascinating piece of Prince memorabilia likely produced to commemorate a Gladstone Gallery exhibition. Smells like folk art. Quite possibly a unique item.
