We have the same drawing with the same signature and AA paper on the

back. It was purchased many years ago by my mother for $125. We have

always assumed that it is a print probably purchased at the museum store.

Gary,

I also have that same drawing. I also have a 30" x 40" drawing by Aldo Luongo. It's a picture of a man and a boy from behind. I bought this set in Kansas City, Mo. around 1970 or so. I gave $300.00 for the set back then. Robert

I have the same Aldo Luongo piece. I am having mine looked at but I am pretty sure that mine is a print. If yours is the original, there are other pieces from his "Lovers" series that are going for over $20,000. Good Luck!

There are many of these that are lithoghraphs- check to see if the signiture is dots with a magnifier (30X) if so it is a litho. Not worth as much.

I have  what has to be a framed copy which I purchased in 1975 of this same picture.  I also have a huge picture by him of a Hispanic man and son in intense blue shirts purchased in 1973.  AWESOME!

I have the same piece of what I call the lovers that I purchased in the Chicago area in 1970. I also have a piece approx. 30 x 40 of what I call the girls. The picture is of 5 young girls faces clustered together. I have not been able to find any of this picture anywhere. Is this a common copy, original or  what? My third is 2 children one offering the other a flower. Worth anything? They were all bought around the same time.

We own the same print, black and white and it was purchased over 40 years ago at college in Los Angeles when my husband and I were dating.  I loved the way the passion of the drawing can be felt by just viewing it.  I have seen Aldo Luongo's later works in color but I still prefer this simple black and white charcoal above the others.  It simply catches the true passion of love.

I have this print which was purchased by future husband as a gift to me at the May Co. in Oceanside, CA forty years ago.  What an appropriate depiction of the love we have had for one another.  I have always cherished it.

I believe the black and white version was a reproduction or poster, not a limited edition.  The artists studio can be found on line.
