Larry Rivers was born on August 17, 1923. In was born in NYC. He also died in NYC. Rivers was an American artist, musician, filmmaker and occasional actor. Rivers resided and maintained studios in New York City, Southampton, New York and Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Ths painting is Lithograph and silkscreen and was done in 1978. I love how the American flag is in the background of his painting. The flag and the hat brings a lot of color to this painting. It is a very interesting painting.
