Lithograph on paper of a donkey with his load, signed in pencil by noted well listed Mexican artist JEAN CHARLOT (1898-1979). This print measures about 2 3/8" by 2 1/2", the shape slightly irregular as the work has apparently been clipped. There are other significant condition issues as well; the print is affixed at top corners, there's a crease at top left, a brown foxing spot above the donkey's load, slight disturbance of paper edge at right; and it is possible that some areas, including the pencil signature, have been rubbed, as with an eraser. Some of these faults were likely acquired while the print traveled without glass. I acquired it from the family of Peter Morse, who wrote the "Jean Charlot's Prints: A Catalogue Raisonne" (1976, University of Hawaii Press). Charlot was born in Paris of Aztec indian descent, and he spent time in Hawaii, Mexico and California. While in Mexico, where he became involved in mural painting, he was as friend of Diego Rivera, David Siqueiros, and Jose Orozco. Charlot was an educator as well as an artist, teaching at the Art Students League in New York, and at such places as the Broadmoor Academy in Colorado. His works are today included in major museums. Oils sell at major New York auctions, and the list of publications in which he is mentioned is very extensive (see askart). This print is an affordable way to own a work of the artist. If tightly matted with new acid free materials, so as to hide the irregular dimensions, the presentation will be improved. .
