£0.00

Original Lithograph, 1967, in colours, on Rives Vellum (watermarked) paper, signed by the artist in pencil

Edition: 60 - The Maeght Catalogue Raisonee calls for an edition of 125. We have, however, seen many examples this item selling through principal auction houses in stated editions of just 60. We conclude from this that the catalogue is in error.

Size: Paper size: 29 inches high, 21.5 inches wide

Printed by: Mourlot Freres, Paris

Published by: Mourlot Freres

Note: This was published to commemorate the opening of the new Master Printers Atelier in New York at 115 Bank Street in 1967. It is a modified “before the lettering” lithograph made of the poster on better paper, with wide margins and signed and numbered. Mourlot Frères was one of the greatest printmaking Ateliers in Paris.
