Correct!
Nagel died the year the first Apple Macintosh was introduced. Everything he did was analog and the process was grueling, especially for his assistants.  In fact, to illustrate just how much work went into it, I devote an entire chapter of The Artist Who Loved Women to describing all the pains Nagel took to produce his pieces.

This was no point and click thing.

I so want Venetian blinds. Not sure I can find one and if I do at a price I can afford.   Here is my
Kristen.  Took over year to negotiate.

I purchased the art because I liked it .  I went through a period where you couldn’t give it away , figuratively speaking .   I’m certainly not unhappy prices are up.

Seriously? Priced that high?

 

Well, in case you thought I was too optimistic about Nagel serigraph prices, take a look at what one collector has up for sale:

Black Robe  ($ 9,000)
Black and White Robe  ($25,000)
Mirage  ($15,000)
Joan Collins ($6,000)

Yes, you read those right.  Each of them is four to five times what you cen get them for on any auction or Ebay site.  

This is what happens when amateurs get into the act.  But who knows? I'd rather have them priced out of this world than otherwise.... :D

Re: "Lorraine" on EBay

If anyone is interested, Lorraine has returned to eBay. She's been reduced from my initial purchase price. She was procured through an American Cancer Society charity auction, so it was for a good cause. Que Sera, Sera.

Not that I want to break from her completely. If anyone can suggest a more flawless Lorraine S/N, or Swimmers S/N, I'd love to chat!

No, Susan.  The piece you sold at auction was an original acrylic on board illustration.

Venetian is a wonderful piece. I love mine. Your Kristen is gorgeous and I am sure it was well worth it.

Re: July 27, 2019 Auction of tempting Nagel collectibles

Cooper_Monster and others. Please take note like Rob has said make sure you ask questions and really look at those pictures or call the auction house if you can't be there. 

The Patrick pieces are not from Arnold, just FYI. The auction house added a few other collections to this auction from other places. These did NOT come from Arnold. 

I saw the pieces today and I am not here to dissuade anyone but I wanted to inform those that may be confused. 

Re: Monica's Prints Valuation

Will do Jason. Im leaning more toward the graphics so its always a maybe. She is still archived, unframed. 
What else are you looking for....

Re: Seriously? Priced that high?

Susan:

If it's an A/P signed in pristine condition, it's in the US$1,000 to US$1,200 range, I'd imagine.  This is the small version of Collector's Gallery, with EVERYONE'S FAVORITE MODEL......Susan Olar!

The N Piece AP unveiled

Monica Moynihan
 

Hello Nagel fans!

I finally received and unveiled for the first time in years my Patrick Nagel "N Piece" or at least that is how I know her. Again not an expert but this was purchased by me from the wonderful Just Looking Gallery in San Luis Obispo. (Thank you Ken and Ralph)! 

I will frame her asap. She is an AP and deserves a gorgeous frame. I love that she is square. 

There is a story here. Just Looking Gallery purchased a few of these prints and the original several years ago and sold them off. I was told I got the last one. (Ken and Ralph kept one for themselves and then one left for me, Yeah.)

Patrick signed and numbered them all. (Ken,  I think said he thought 150 were printed or so total, maybe less) and a handful of AP's guessing 15 max. 

They were commissioned by a publisher/printer in Mexico. Several artists during this time were asked by the publisher in Mexico to make a piece with their last initial. Clearly one can see the N in the telephone line for Nagel. Its very special. 

The story continues however that Mirage got upset with the publisher and "threatened" to no longer allow them access to pieces from Mirage if they sold these or something of that nature....Maybe you guys know more. Anyway so they did not sell them since Mirage was hot hot hot and they wanted access to all of Patrick's work to sell and so forth, so only a handful made it to the states before they were shelved and archived.

Just Looking Gallery got access to what survived several years ago. 

I know there is a similar image I believe Patrick did for Playboy (telephone in pink?) Love on the Line or something. Doesn't really show the N initial in the same manner. I like mine. I love that she is smiling. Patrick obviously didn't release many smiling pieces like TEXAS during his lifetime, so this one must have been fun for him. He apparently was commissioned to do this when he went to Mexico to teach some art students. So what fun he must have been having! 

I wanted to share with you all. And if anyone wants some originals Just Looking Gallery still has some and they are a TOP NOTCH place to work with. I also purchased my rare Double Paper Mill there. Highly recommend. 

Hope you all enjoy.

Monica

Just looking Gallery was the conduit for works Jennifer Dumas was selling from the Nagel estate years ago .   I’ve done lots of deals with those guys.  Good people in my book .

Re: The N Piece AP unveiled

 

One of the interviews for the book (the story didn't make it into the book), was how Patrick befriended a little-known street artist from New York, taking him up north to meet the guys at Just Looking Gallery in hopes of getting them to buy the guy's work.  They didn't like the stuff at all. They passed, but wished him luck.

That guy from New York?  Keith Haring.
