In the mid 1990s I had a gentleman come into the gallery who had in his possession the 1970 School of the Art Institute MFA graduating class serigraph collection. It turns out, it’s a pretty important collection! Some of the artists that went on to achieve fame and fortune were Ed Paschke, Red Grooms, Jim Nutt, Gladys Nilsson, Barabara Rossi, and of course Karl Wirsum.
I have personally been a huge fan of Karl’s art for years and it’s a privilege to own this beautiful piece of art. I took it to Jean Albano Gallery a few years back and Jean herself appraised it at $3500. If you are savvy enough to buy this piece of art from me, my hat will be off to you.
