Found in Southern California, this is a mixed media (colored markers and pencils) drawing on paper, 23 1/4" by 18", unframed, the subject a stylized seated obese woman. The artist signed her name at lower right and dated the work nearby "04". The name appears to me as "Greta A. Dietrich" or similar, but I do not see a listing under the various possibilities I have investigated---more research might turn up the artist name. It does seem to me that the artist was familiar with the works of David Hockney and Fernando Botero.............some of the elements of their work is present here. There is a dedication at upper left "To Weir/With Love OX OX". The work might have been rolled at one time as there are a number of handling creases, as the photos, taken in raking late afternoon light, show. Displayed on the wall, I think the creases would be less obvious than in these images. Presently the work is protected in a simple protective-only minimal frame. A very unusual contemporary work.
