Re: Name and backstory of this art print?
"I don't think you're going to find anything on this piece, mainly because it appears to be a fake.
Nagel generally avoided splotchy accents, but more to the point, from what I can tell, the signature is way off.
That's probably why you can't find it anywhere."
Ummm, this exact image can be found in the gallery of the official Patrick Nagel site: http://www.patricknagel.com/gallery.html#
What made you think it was fake? Nagel used splotchy backgrounds in several pieces, and I'm not seeing anything wrong with the signature.
