Signed by Listed Artist Gary Michael, Original Pastel on Paper Works on Paper, Indian woman with Child. The drawing measures 16 inches wide and 20 inches tall. The original wood frame measures 21-1/4 inches wide and 25-1/4 inches tall. I see no damage to the pastel. The pastel is not stuck to the glass as it has an air gap between the drawing and the glass. Signed lower left corner, 'Gary Michael.' On back is '91' with artist initials so this was drawn in 1991.

Born 1937 and raised in Denver, Colorado, Gary Michael started drawing and painting as a child. Attending college on a tennis scholarship, he went on to earn multiple postgraduate degrees and become a university professor. Michael retired from the field of academia to pursue his passion for paint and canvas.

Although he continues to consider Denver his home, Michael divides his time between Colorado and such diverse locations as Mexico, Nepal and Europe, painting with oils and with pastels. He has earned acclaim as a mountain climber, published author and public speaker and is known to art collectors who prize his landscapes, figurative, botanical as well as still life paintings.
