About Patrick Nagel

Although his career was cut short due to his premature death in 1984, Patrick Nagel left behind a body of work that displays his unique style. Nagel rose to fame in the late 1970s while working with Playboy magazine, but made it big when he created the cover for rock band Duran Duran's album "Rio." From there, his work was in high demand and he created a number of serigraphs featuring his work with a number of female models. The serigraphs come from photographs that Nagel took, then put through a silk-screening process to create his signature style. Original Patrick Nagel prints, especially those that are signed, fetch a high price. It is a good idea to make sure that any signed prints have a certificate of authenticity that ensure that they are the real deal. Original serigraphs can be pricey, too, many buyers often seek out Patrick Nagel framed prints, which helps to protect their investment. There is a vast inventory of Patrick Nagel prints on eBay to choose from, so fans of the artist can find the exact print they want with little or no effort. Whether you are a child of the 1980s or just love the era, a Patrick Nagel print makes for an ideal addition to any collection.
