"Song of Songs of Solomon" FORGERY: "Looke not upon mee ..." ("Reclining Nude").

Auction end date: 1/5/2012
Sale price: $165
Details: published by Leon Amiel; No. EA; 15.5" x 9.75" image on 22" x 15" paper.
NOTE: purports to be original intaglio #71-17C (Field pp. 70-71), but it is a forgery.  Original prints from this suite are not marked EA, and the paper size is consistent with known forgeries (Field p. 238).  The signature is suspect.
