In the '80s there were like all your obvious dream cars: Porsche 911 Turbo, Ferrari 308 GTB Bi-Turbo, Lamborghini Countach, and some might include the Corvette or even the Lotus Esprit Turbo...but I always had a spot in my heart for the Pantera. It's half Sports Car and half Muscle Car. It's the Super Car you could work on in your garage.
The print isn't in excellent condition. I could see that when I bought it but I was hoping that it
was an original painting. Who knows what something like this would be worth if it's an original,
right? I'm still enamored with it. I'll just reframe it so that the stained edges don't show.
I was still hoping it was a painting after I unframed it. There isn't the tell tale "Circa" and all that
printed on it anywhere. How can one tell if this is a lithograph or a painting just by looking at the
subject matter? I don't know. I did a Google Image search for: "watercolor pantera" and found
an identical litho for sale on eBay. I think that pretty much nails the coffin shut on the Orig.
I guess if you look at the close up of the sig. pic in the largest size you can see the print matrix
or whatever you call that. I can't pick that out with my naked eye. Wish I knew more about the
artist. Did this person do more pieces like this?
This style of technique is IMHO so of the '70s just like the Pantera. Perfect combination! So this
posting goes out the all the fellas who read Mr. Modtomic and are tired of all the dishes and
clothes irons and glassware. I know it's not a real supercar...but it's still pretty much "Guy Stuff"
(even if it is art!).
Nothing on the back except some light pencil marks.
