Norma Bassett Hall, “Home of a Spanish Cobbler”, serigraph

Southwest scene of a Spanish Cobbler and child. The print has very light burn marks around the edges from earlier framing.  These are not visible in the framed piece.  It is now archivally framed with 100% rag matting and UV protective glass. There is a small flaw in the surface of the print in the lower right quadrant – visible in the secondary images.
