    Theres a Louis Mercorella in Baltimore that is 81 years old. Hes got a phone number listed,wich astonishes me that people still do that. Maybe you can reach out and he can tell you who did this piece.I *think* the artist says Micheal Lamprien" but Ive not found anything.

    Is it done with black crayon or craypas? I like the artist's line work.
    If it's an original and not a print, I think you won a treasure.

    Looks like a lithograph. Could be original.

    What is the Watergate connection?

    Says "Impeach Nixon" in the background?

    Please let me know what you think litho or not. Have not seen another and you think would be numbered if it was. 20220623_125558_resize_52.jpg 20220623_125535_resize_54.jpg 20220623_125519_resize_54.jpg 20220623_125455_resize_15.jpg

    Was auctioned as impeach nixon and the date is 1973 so it puts it in timeline.

    Can you tell it looks original to me? I am a collector in search of that million dollar piece.

    If you take a q-tip to the color and easily come away with some color without smearing anything, it's original.

    In looking at your latest posts, it appears more print-like from the textures used.

    Thank you I will do that so I would be looking for a waxy residue. If it were done in crayon or something similar?

    From looking at your close ups, it's possible that it was done as a monoprint lithograph for "Louise" too - if it's a print, it could still hold a good amount of value.

    Even if just a single print, it's valuable.
