I'd love to have this as a print. Probably couldn't afford an original.

Edit: No I couldn't afford the original. It sold for $12,000

Oil & gilt on wood, 5" x 8"

i know hussar is all the fudge and everything (and i don't disagree) but that's a phenomenal price for such a tiny work.

i'm pretty sure that $12k would eff up 99.9% of us for at least a year or two (unless the wifey kicked her salary in too)...but for 5x8?? i'd be sorely tempted if the piece was 8-10x that size, but not for a postcard.

Maybe the gold gilt is an inch thick? You know the price of gold these days?! :wink: :)

I agree man. Hussar is hands down my favorite artist but this was a bit pricey. Thing is, the piece looks more like an oil study than an oil painting. It just seems really loose and not too clean, and on top of that it's tiny. Guess that just goes to show that Hussar is truly one of the most sought after artists painting right now. If you guys are local to LA, go to a coffee shop in old town pasadena. They've got two HUGE original Hussar's on their walls. Quite something to see. Not sure of the name of it, but if you google "michael hussar pasadena coffee" it will come up.
