    Best viewed with a top gallery light to reveal the colors. Colors in the print will subtly change with light source. More light that is directed on the print the more the color will come out.
    Framed behind acrylic measuring 41 x 32 x 2 inches.
    The condition of the Polaroid Polacolor print is good. The print shows no surface wear or obvious discoloration. The frame has some minor separation in the upper left and right quadrants. It has been filled in the paint not to reveal the slim crack. Plexiglass has a few very minor surface issues visible mostly on close inspection.

    Though he originally trained as a painter, William Wegman is best known for his humorous photographs of his pet Weimaraner dogs. Wegman typically poses his canine subjects in an array of poses and costumes, occasionally equipping them with a bevy of props. His compositions are often in dialogue with art history, riffing on tenets of Minimalism and color field painting. Additionally, the artist has experimented with Polaroids and made paintings of postcards. Wegman’s work belongs in the collections of the Centre Pompidou, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Walker Art Center, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Wegman has also produced drawings and films.
