Hi,

I bought this print a few years ago from an estate sale. I had always assumed it was a reproduction, because the ink does not bleed through on the back (see photos), and it lacks any signature or seal, as all other copies of it I have seen have. But I recently showed photos to an owner of a gallery, who thinks that it is an original and that the ink does not bleed through because the paper on which it is printed is thicker. Any thoughts?

Thank you for your help!
Alex
