An exceptional piece of copper and brass repousse by Gregory Ridley from 1973. This piece entitled "Crying Ghetto" is crafted of copper and brass. It is stretched onto a canvas, the canvas is backed and it is ready for hanging.
It is a decent size measuring 17 3/4 H X 12 1/2" W X 1 1/2" D.
The back gives it's history which reads as follows: "Crying Ghetto by Greg Ridley '73 - A Ridley Original - Master of Copper & Brass Repousse - 185 Hall Street, Apt Studio 1413, Brooklyn, NY 11205 - 622-3392 - Represented: Order: American Negro Art by Cedric Dover 1961- 595 NY Graphic Society, Greenwich, Conn"
Condition is Very Good with one minor flaw on the bottom right corner. See last photo. Otherwise displays beautifully.
