50's Badminton Player


Oil painting on duct tape 48 x 24

The paintings labeled d'Artagnan are signed, dated and numbered along the edge with the pseudonym d'Artagnan. Most are painted on duct tape wrapped around sound absorbing building material or boxes. They are all well sealed and most have no provisions for hanging, although these could be added. They could also "lean" or be held upright by hinging boards with a notch.  

Some unscrupulous collector has obviously stolen this magnificent piece of art. It's not the sort of thing that's misplaced. I hope that those visiting this website will be vigilant and make a report to the authorities should they see it at some estate sale or auctioned at Christie's or Sotheby's. It was one of d'Artagnan's finest.
