PRINT TITLE: Before Mirror

This overall print measures about 15-1/2 inches by 10-11/16 inches. The image area measures about 14-3/8 inches by 10-1/16inches.

PRINT HISTORY: On May 6, 2005, this print was found and purchased from a store that sold used books that was in the process of closing and is no longer in business. I found this print under a stack of papers along with other prints in the store. The previous owner of the print informed me that this print was part of a collection that her and her husband had acquired years ago.
