Item Details
Description
Original sumi ink drawing on white paper, untitled (Outline Man Holding An Atomic Figure), attributed to Keith Haring (1958-1990). Signed. 14 1/8 x 9 3/4 inches. Small hinge remnants to reverse when previously framed, otherwise excellent condition. Currently unframed.

Provenance: Presumed to have been acquired by the former owner, Bruce Decker, directly from the artist. Mr. Decker, who was an AIDS activist and assistant to Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller, was closely associated with the present owner for a number of years through their mutual work with Elizabeth Taylor and amfAR (The Foundation for AIDS research). The current owner acquired the drawing from Mr. Decker, circa 1984-90.

AUTHENTICATION AND PROVENANCE OF ATTRIBUTED LOTS (and/or lots described as "in the manner of"): This lot is being offered as "attributed to" (or in the manner of) the named artist. Preston Hall Gallery is not a recognized authority on works by this artist; we have no specific documentation to prove its authenticity, nor have we (or to our knowledge, has anyone else) submitted it to any expert or committee of experts for review or forensic examination. Authentication is not an exact science. Contrary opinions may exist. The signature, style, and composition of the work seem absolutely correct and are similar to pieces of known authenticity and provenance which we have seen or sold, although neither we nor the consignor can guaranty that the present lot is wholly or partly by the ascribed artist. REGARDING PROVENANCE, we must rely to an extent on information provided to us by the consignor, family records or documents, estate papers, and/or other third parties. We provide whatever information we have available. If you have questions about a lot's provenance, please ask them prior to bidding. Unless stated otherwise, no documents, letters or certificates of authenticity, or additional information concerning provenance will accompany the lot. We do not obtain written affidavits from consignors regarding provenance, thus bidders should be aware that Preston Hall Gallery is not always able to verify facts regarding a lot's provenance. As such, the provenance may contain inaccuracies. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you require absolute certainty regarding a lot's attribution, its signature or any other identifying inscriptions or marks, date of creation, or history of ownership and if the lot's description or your personal or online examination of the lot in question does not address these issues to your satisfaction, WE STRONGLY URGE YOU NOT TO BID ON OR BUY THE LOT.
