Edition limited to 341 total impressions (285 numbered impressions, 50 artist's proofs, and 6 printer's proofs). Stark contrasts highlight this classic artwork of the legendary "Sultan of Swat."

Neiman created this iconic image of Ruth in 1995 as a special tribute to the much-celebrated 100th anniversary of Ruth's birth. The serigraph measures 18 x 23.5 inches (image area) and is in Near Mint condition. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 29 x 34 inches. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,148
