This self-portrait was drawn, etched and proofed by Jack Beal when he and Sondra Freckelton lived and worked on the 5th floor of 101 Prince Street in New York City. Reinforced window glass was required by the building code. Jack was the superintendent for the building, and he and Sondra lived and worked in that loft from 1963-1975. Hector's Luncheonette was on the ground floor in those days. This plate was not editioned until 2004.
