Ah, I see. So Dave's headstone was for someone who refused to pay the union chiselers.
Yes, probably was, but then I forgot something when I quoted the traditional chisel-wielder's standard sting in the tail: had said chiseler been a real artiste
, the verso
would have borne his imprint, serial number and edition details.
From the evidence presented by David, this must have been the work of an artisan and not
of an artiste.
So, lower middle class work, I'm afraid; not much curatorial prospect there, then.
Some clans were better than others.
