[Forum Admin's Note:  The following compilation was put together through the efforts of Mark Walker on the former http://www.patricknagel.com site. I am putting my two cents here.

In terms of art history, in addition to his unusual style, Nagel was one of the first – if not the first – to successfully market advertising as art at its inception. In other words, where some antique posters (such as those of Cassandre and Lautrec – artists which Nagel admired) garnered recognition of their artistic value in the decades after their printing, Nagel and Karl Bornstein were the first to take the unheard of step of creating an advertisement, and then asking the art-buying public to purchase the advertisement before the ink had even dried!

Perhaps this was the natural progression of the Pop Art Movement where Warhol taught the viewer to see the inherent artistic qualities of iconic advertising images. Nagel and Bornstein knew that businesses such as Hanson, Just Looking, Casa Lupita etc. would pay for production of flattering posters. What was particularly surprising is that the buying public would fork over hundreds – and later thousands – of dollars for the privilege of owning a copy of the advertisement.

By doing so, Nagel and Bornstein were pushing the Pop Art message further. Advertising not only could reflect artistic quality, as Warhol would demonstrate, it could actually stand on its own as a work of artistic merit.]

HISTORY:

Patrick Nagel had been working as a commercial artist for several years before becoming affiliated with Mirage Editions. His work first appears in Playboy magazine in April of 1974. By January of 1976, Nagel's work is in every issue. When Patrick Nagel met Karl Bornstein in 1977, Pat’s work had already graced the cover of Charlene’s Songs of Love album. (In the text of the book, Karl mentions hosting a gallery show of album cover art when he met Nagel.)

SERIGRAPH POSTERS:

Soon after Nagel and Bornstein met, in August of 1977, Mirage Editions, Inc. releases their first limited edition serigraph poster: Nagel’s Mirage Ship. From 1977 to 1984, many Nagel limited edition serigraph posters are released. These limited edition serigraph posters are printed using the silk-screening method, meaning that for every color, a separate screen is used. These posters were printed on archival grade 100% cotton rag, usually printed in two states:

1) One state of aproximately 1000 that are signed in the screen, "s-i-s," (which means Nagel’s signature is not done by hand, but is included in the silk-screening process), this is not "signed" in terms of art, since the artist did NOT hand sign the print.

2) Another state of aproximately 250 which are hand signed and numbered by Patrick, usually in pencil. These will not have the screen-printed signature. They are usually marked something like "122/250," which means that the print is number 122 within the signed series of 250.

There are also prints marked "a/p," which means "artist’s proof," and some might be noted as "printer’s proof," though Nagel seems to have actually written that out rather than doing what most artist did: mark it with a "p/p."

For the posters printed by Jeff Wasserman (all of the early ones and some of the later ones), the weight of the paper is slightly heavier for the hand signed and numbered prints than it is for the unsigned (signed in screen) prints.

It is unclear whether or not Santiago Samper used heavier weight paper for the hand-signed posters or not, but based on owning both signed and unsigned (signed in screen) versions of the same Nagel posters created by Samper Silkscreen, I am inclined to believe that he did not alter the weight of the paper from signed to signed-in-screen prints.

There are also several limited edition serigraph posters that have a subset of special versions, "Just Looking," "Mirage," and "Papillon," which are all hand signed and noted in pencil.

Later in Nagel’s career he started "dedicating" prints. When Patrick would have a show or make an appearance at a gallery, for a small fee, clients could have Nagel sign and date one of his prints. These dedicated prints usually include Pat’s signature, the date, and might also have a notation like "To George and Mary." These prints are usually from the signed-in-screen (aka "unsigned") versions of the posters.

LITHOGRAPH POSTERS  -- LIMITED EDITIONS (sort of):

Included within Nagel’s lifetime-released poster series, there are five unlimited edition solid plate lithographs: "Art Expo NY 1980," "Art Expo Cal 1981," "Art Expo NY 1981," "Sunglasses (Black)" and "Sunglasses (Silver)." These lithographs, while unlimited, do have a set of hand signed and numbered prints.

Lithography lends itself to massive print runs, which is why it was the process employed for the creation of the unlimited edition posters. I believe each of the "Art Expo" prints were created in one very large run. These posters were distributed at their namesake art expos, and, of course, were available for sale to galleries worldwide through Mirage Editions.

"Sunglasses" (both versions) were printed and printed and printed on an as needed basis before and after Nagel died.

Lithography does not have the ability to lay down as much pigment as serigraphy, which is why these prints are more subject to fading than Nagel’s serigraphs.

I am including the lithographs within this topic even though they were intended to be unlimited. Since a limited number were signed by Nagel it makes sense to include them in this subject.

WHY ARE THESE CALLED "POSTERS" IF THEY ARE SO HIGH QUALITY?

People often think "poster = cheap," or "poorly made," and within the world of art, this is not the case. "Poster" simply means that the print has text or might be advertising something. In Nagel’s case, this often means the sponsor and namesake of the poster, be it a restaurant like "Mother Earth’s Paris," an investment firm like "Hanson," or Mirage Editions itself.

poster = some text, even if minimal

graphic = no text.

ERRORS IN THE BOOK THE ART OF PATRICK NAGEL:

There are some errors in edition sizes or images within the print section of the book. Those will be corrected within the individual postings and noted as such.

ABOUT VALUE, MONETARY AND OTHERWISE :

It is, unfortunately, the nature of the current Nagel marketplace that many visitors come to this forum trying to determine the value of the Nagels they own so they can sell them. ("They don’t match my decor," is often mentioned.) Currently, the Nagel market is soft which makes this a "buyer’s market." When these pieces are sold on eBay, they sell for much less than what was listed on Mirage Edition's pricing sheets back in the 80s and early 90s.

I believe the true value of any work of art is in the joy one gets from experiencing it, not in the monetary value it had in 1984 or has in 2006.

Having said that, it seems that Nagel’s lifetime-released, limited edition posters, when listed on eBay, sell for anywhere from $100.00 to $700.00, with the high end number pretty much reserved for a very few, pristine, signed and numbered versions of the in demand, earliest prints like "Mirage Ship," and "Mother Earth’s Paris." These are the prices one is apt to get if you are looking to sell your pieces in the current 2006 marketplace. This comes from monitoring eBay and live auctions for Nagel works over the last several years. (As to whether not eBay is an accurate meter for establishing the value of art work is a debate I will save for others.)

If you are a potential seller, I would suggest the following: if you’re going to post the work on eBay, list it for the minimum you are willing to accept for it. I have found, both as a buyer and seller of Nagel prints on eBay, that regardless of whether I list a print with a starting bid of $5.00 or $50.00, it almost always sells for what the current market is dictating. I do see a lot of Nagel work on eBay that is priced too high given today’s marketplace. Sellers end up wasting their time, energy, and money on listings that expire with no one bidding.

If you are collector insuring your collection for replacement value, you should list that value as what it could cost you to replace your print should it be destroyed. This means that you might have to quadruple the value that it might sell for, since many potential sellers will not part with Nagel’s work at today’s prices. In other words, as a "motivated buyer," you are apt to pay a premium to procure a particular Nagel print away from a seller who wont' part for it than less than Mirage listed as its worth in 1990.

Hopefully by posting the above comments we can slow the stream of "What is it worth"? and "I want to sell it"? questions and comments to the forum.

Regards,

Mark

- The print can be seen in Doc's office on the television series "The Love Boat."

- The poster was based upon A.M. Cassandre's poster of the ship "Atlantic;" however, the original prototype of this poster depicted Cassandre's "Normandie" (the guache of which is found in the collection of Robert Crook).

-STATE EDITION omits the text below the image (SIGNED): 40
DIMENSIONS: 17" x 25"
OTHER VERSIONS RELEASED?: See State Edition information in this post.

This was the fourth Nagel limited edition serigraph poster released. There is also some speculation that there are actually fewer than the 1000 signed in screen (unsigned) versions as Mirage stopped printing early to get to work on Nagel's next serigraph: "Mother Earth's Paris."

Note that it includes the first subset of a "state edition," which omits the text beneath the image.
An error in the book would suggest that the state edition also omits the "Just Looking" above the image, but one of these was listed on eBay recently with all the proper notations, indicating the editors of the book did a bad "prePhotoShop" job of taking out all the border details.

The colors of the State Edition match those of the regular version. The differences presented here are just the result of variances in photography (and probable fading of the state edition version.)
This is the state edition version:

daqcraig,

If you look at the print information, you will see that the double images are listed there with the other iterations; There are six hand signed and numbered double images, and six unsigned (signed in plate.)

The "Other versions released?" section of the print information
is for noting if the image was re-used in some other format,
like the posthumous lithographs of "Michelle," "Grey Lady," "Texas/Rio," "Playboy," or the limited edition graphic of "Standing Lady" as compared to the limited edition serigraph poster of "Wasserman," and the posthumous lithograph of "Standing Lady" or the "Kristen" graphic vs the "Nagel Nagel" limited edition serigraph poster, to help buyers and sellers avoid confusion and know exactly what they have or are bidding on.

For example, I see someone trying to sell their "Nagel: The Book" unsigned (and unlimited) posthumous litho as if it was one of the "Mirage" special proof on both eBay and another on ArtBrokerage.com.  I see another person has listed their "Nagel Nagel" thinking it is "Kristen" at ArtBrokerage.com

I GREATLY appreciate nagelite porting over the data from the former site and I will follow up with the rest of my information to complete the limited edition prints, graphics, and other posters, particularly since so many folks have the unlimited prints and want to know if they are rare and/or valuable.

Regards,

Nagel-Angel

Hello, I have come across a copy of a Nagel work that appears to have the original frame, with an old and somewhat aged Mirage stamped on the back of the frame. The image itself is the same as the Nagel book. Is there any investment value in this whatsover? a Thank You dzakrewski@yahoo.com

I have a quick question,I have a picture of the "Grey Lady" I'm not quite sure if it is a reproduction or possibly real , it has a signature on it , if I decided to sell what would it be worth? Can anyone give me information I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank You.

Hello,

One thing you need to understand is that without a picture of your piece, there is no way to be able to help you.  You might have: a fan made copy, the lifetime released serigraph, the posthumously released print, etc, plus there is the myriad of questions about the condition of the piece, how it was framed, its archival state and so on.  Value questions cannot really be answered without knowing all of the above.  With a picture, we can at least tell you which version of the piece you have, and would be the first step to knowing its value.

I have a quick question,I have a picture of the "Grey Lady" I'm not quite sure if it is a reproduction or possibly real , it has a signature on it , if I decided to sell what would it be worth? Can anyone give me information I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank You.

I recently found a Nagel picture in my father's belongings. I only took a quick look at it so I do not remember if it had a signature or not but I know it is numbered to prove it's a original. It's supposed to be a limited edition original that was released when he was still alive but I don't see a picture of it with any of the images above. I'm very new to this art work so I couldn't tell you what it's called. Would anyone have any more images of the originals that I could look through?

I am bumping this thread. I see that with Nagelite first posted over from the former site, he lost a lot of my information or it got trunkated in the process. I will try to recreate it now, since the image links are all now broken since I felt the need to move the images to a new location.

Hopefully I can update this in the next few weeks.

Cheers,

NA

Thanks WWT. When I post them, I am going to make them into image files and also post them to other public online places so folks can readily find them.
I have often seen my text, mostly from the previous forum, copied into folks' eBay auctions, and I support that because it helps get the information out there where it will help folks.
