SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY THE ARTIST, STAMPED FOR AUTHENTICITY FROM MAGUI FRENCH ATELIER STUDIO AND SPHYNX FINE ART
I am selling the last 25 images of my USA edition of a hand pulled lime stone lithograph, done at an atelier in Paris, France, some 30+ years ago when my paintings were on exhibition there in the Magui Gallery, known for being the gallery of Salvador Dali fame when the artist was still alive and making art in France. I had the privilege of showing my work there as well as utilizing the service of the artists of the local atelier to do a 12-stone pressed lithograph of one of my paintings, named “WATERFALL.” It took 12 separate pressings of the stones, each stone with an individual color to make up the complexity of the image on 100% museum grade cotton fiber watermarked Arches paper, each embossed with the stamp of authenticity of the atelier in Paris where it was created and my own art company, Sphynx Fine Art Ltd. Each original lithograph hand signed and numbered by me.
There were 2 editions of 250 each worldwide, before the stone plate images were destroyed, one edition for European distribution and sales from the gallery in France, the other for the USA, brought home by me in 1984 after the exhibition. The European edition sold out during the course of the show, the USA edition as I said, came home with me and was sold at galleries in New York, San Francisco, an my art gallery in Los Angeles. Each graphic sold unframed for $1995.00, I am selling the last 25 images for $995.00 each, this GRAPHIC done 32-years ago, saving $1000 off asking price for a piece of history in your space that cannot be reproduced.
This graphic [photo above], also with image of the oil painting (4′ x 6′] it was created from [below photo of original painting in private collection] is a bit of my history.
By education, and hopefully with some talent, but you can be the judge, I am an Associate Professor of Art and Design from the University of California, Berkeley. I say I am, because my degrees and teaching credential are good for life, so why not?
This offering is the last stone lithograp done from one of my defined eras in my life “that says I was here,” so to speak, and I can say with a smile, was a very special time in my creative career, spawning even the boat conceptions for open designs I am doing today.
Someday, I will be put out to pasture so to speak and paint away on the corner of some little beach town under a palm tree in the shade from a hot sun, with cold drink in hand… somewhere in the world, a time I look very forward to. The perfect image would be me adding brush in hand with a hand-rolled cigarette in the corner of my mouth climbing stream of blue smoke rising to the heavens, but since I don’t smoke, that part of the image will have to be dismissed… but you get the picture.
Let me know what you think. I am tubing them up this week for shipment, so let me know if you want one?
