This print is from the rare dye-transfer edition of four. The image suggests a grandiose precedent for the more subversive setting of models in the apertures of a dilapidated London building in a scene from Richard Lester's 1965 film The Knack...and how to get it.
Staley Wise Gallery, New York
Please note this print is vintage, and was not 'printed later' as incorrectly noted in the catalogue.
