Schneider, Gary (Artist/Photographer); Wolf, Sylvia (Subject/Model) & Bungay, Tracy (Designer). GARY SCHNEIDER: "GLOVE": ARTIST PROOF. New York City, NY: Gary Schneider Studios, 1995. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. As New.

Rare Gary Schneider collectible art. A pristine, framed Artist Proof of "Glove" handprint, titled, dated, numbered, and signed by Gary Schneider. There is no ISBN. The print is now rare. A brilliant production by Gary Schneider: Regular-sized print format. Measures 8 X 10 inches. Beautifully framed borderless, in very thick and heavy silver-gray metal and Plexiglas by Tracy Bungay Fine Framing, under the direct supervision of Martha Schneider Gallery Chicago. Full frame size is 9 X 11 inches. Eminently suitable for display. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Gary Schneider's "Glove". The luminous print of Sylvia Wolf's hand, one of the most important figures of contemporary art photography. "I have made handprint-portraits since 1993. I consider them to be as expressive as any portrait of a face, more private, and possibly more revealing" (Gary Schneider). His other handprint-portraits are collected in the lovely Artist Book, "Gary Schneider: Hand Book" (1998), published by Aperture, and the "culmination of 17 years of Schneider's commitment to making portraits of hands. For Schneider (who, in a former incarnation, was known as a master of chemical darkroom printing), the adaptation of digital technology marks a profound and telling shift in contemporary art and publishing" (Aperture Foundation). An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item/artwork for Gary Schneider collectors. This framed Artist Proof is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully titled, dated, numbered, and signed in pencil on verso by the artist/photographer: "Glove 1995 AP 6 Gary Schneider". Because it is signed at the back, the signature is NOT visible in front, as many framed prints are. So a Xeroxed image-proof comes with the print, and is enclosed in its own protective plastic sleeve. This title is a great photographic print. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is beautifully framed, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Gary Schneider prints command thousands of dollars from his galleries, at art fairs, and at auction. His work is slowly but surely destined for canonical recognition. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed print thus. 1 original Artist Proof. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print.
