Punk Duchess Print Giveaway

To celebrate my having moved to a new pad, I thought I would do a print giveaway! I chose “Varuca” which measures 11×14 inches and was printed by Mahan Gallery in Columbus, Ohio on matte fine art paper back in 2008. Aside from proofs, only 10 of these were made! She comes signed, numbered, and dated.

All you have to do is leave a comment and the winner will be chosen using a randomizer on Sunday the 12th at 6pm EST.

Varuca, Duchess of Scovelica (1512 – 1579)
First daughter to the 2nd Marquess of Terra. Married at the age of 14 to the Duke of Scovelica, her exotic looks and passion for horses made the rumors of her supposed Mongolian heredity popular within many social circles. Self-conscious about her height, she began wearing her hair in up in spikes as means to appear taller. This began a trend that would move in and out of fashion, for centuries.

You can read more about her, and her family, in my book.

    She would be in good company, with the psychedelic Mary in the same house. Though I think she would get mounted in one of my music rooms, as she would be more in line with music scofflaws than my abstract canvases and Devo art.

    This would look great hanging across from the green woman my sister painted for me.

    Varuca would have her own purple wall in our music studio. She’s amazing! Great work, Arabella.
