Framed Flash

Classic vintage tattoo flash from the mid 1950s. Pen + ink / watercolor on cardstock. Float mounted with a barrier against dupioni silk. Gold gilt frame with sgraffitto panels contrasts the "low brow" subject matter. Spacers keep the anti-reflective museum glass from direct contact with the drawing.
