Pair of Postage Stamp Paintings - Mixed Media Collage - Pop Art

A fun pair of paintings straight from the '60's with a real Pop Art sensibility.

These oils or acrylics on canvas are depictions of two postage stamps of the time, one red, one green, with each painting also having collage elements. The green painting has a copy of the stamp it depicts, while the smaller red painting has many stamps, cut out postmarks, and other commercially printed images including an old-fashioned eagle sticker.

Condition is fine, with a bit of expected darkening of the collage elements and varnish. They are framed in new black wooden frames that have some depth, a nice choice. Both the paintings measure 13 3/4" high overall, so they can be hung side by side nearly seamlessly. I have had them hanging on either side of a corner, and I think it looked great. The green painting measures 17 3/4" wide overall, 15 3/4" sight size. The red painting is square. Both are signed by the artist with the initials "R. L.", the red painting on the lower left corner, and the green painting on the verso with the added date "1969".

These are bright and lively pieces with a witty edge. They will make you smile with their painterly perforated edges and meandering cancellation marks. If you have a philatelist in your life, I can't think of a more fun or fitting gift. Pop art was one of the last great movements of 'modern' art. Hang these babies up, the years will melt away and it'll seem just like yesterday.
