I am following up on some of these critical postings, as I think it is very important that we collaborate and share the information we have so folks can make the most informed decisions possible, and those folks that have pieces can learn more and list them correctly if they hope to sell them.
Based on all my years of experience this Nagel Nagel version of Kristen seems authentic. We all want to help make sure we're identifying pieces correctly, and this piece does suffer from blurry images, which is a problem, but even with a focus issue, I can tell this is an authentic signed in the screen "Nagel Nagel" that was dedicated by hand by Pat.
Yes, the seller commits a major faux pas by posting blurry images, which should always make buyers cautious, but, even blurry, I can tell this is one of those prints, like Dyansen and Gallerie Michael, that many folks paid a bit extra during a gallery appearence to have Patrick personally sign and date for them, like "To George and Mary, May 22, 1983."
I have noticed that the "Nagel Nagel" version of Kristen, along with Gallerie Michael, and Dyansen seem to have the highest numbers of signed in screen (s-i-s) prints with these types of dedications on them. The good news is that all those words in Nagel's distinctive handwriring would be really challenging to attempt to fake and the movation would not be there to do such, as these are still, technically, the signed in screen prints and not the signed and numbered.
There is even a photo of Pat at the Dyansen Gallery dedicating pieces in this manner. ("Black Bustier" is shown prominenty in the background.)
Yes, the seller also did not correctly note this is the "Nagel Nagel" version of "Kristen," but they would not be the first seller to misunderstand what they are selling. A quick Google search would have led them to misname the print. It doesn't help that Nagel Nagel is not a good title. Folks often mis-identify "Gallerie Michael" as "Michelle," and Wasserman as Standing Lady too, but that just shows some easy mistake making and not fraud in most cases.
There are prints out there with faked signatures, but most of the ones I have seen with faked signatures were later liftimetime-released graphics, and the signatures and markings have been pretty obious (at leat to me) in the fakery.
This listing is bouncing around all over the place and is a perfect example of the clumsier frauds out there. Also, if you're trying to buy authentic Nagel limited, signed and numbered editions, you can see some being listed for anywhere from $2500 to $6000+. NONE of these are selling at those prices. I reached out to one seller who admitted as much. They just keep re-listing the items year after year.
