the flying woman

This lithograph hangs in my parents house.R.C. Gorman, 1981, Dream (Night), Lithograph

They purchased it in the first few years of their marriage. i came across the artist while looking for "inspiration" for my art class. I have seen this style from other artist and was not sure it was the same. My mother corrected the story i remembered about the piece, told me what they had payed and so forth. I looked it up, did the inflation calculator and so forth- it has almost quadrupled in value.
I don't nessacaraly like a lot of the other work by this artist, but a few i do, and this is one of them.
