I need some help identifying this artist and the portrait subject. I'm sure it's some actress or famous woman. At first I thought it was Ali MacGraw but I'm not so sure. The signature looks like LOBO 67. There's a pop artist in SA but he is in his late 30's.

@smark,
To me it looks like Natalie Wood but I'm not positive about that.

It looks like Edie Sedgwick to me.

She was one of Andy Warhol's muses so it kind of makes sense.

@Ragman,
Yeah it does kind of look like Edie,

The eyes kind of reminded me of Natalie.

@smark,
I don't. But that doesn't mean anything.

I guessed Edie Sedgwick just because it looks like her plus the painting seemed to be a homage to Warhol.

Do you have a close up shot of the signature? Is it a painting or a screen print or something else? Where did you get it?

It would be cool if you could somehow tie it to The Factory. There were dozens and dozens of uncredited artists working there.
