For sale here is a BIG vintage 1960s 70s signed numbered and titled "Ragged Fortune Teller" original abstract modernist lithograph by American artist Dorothea Bilder. The artist was born on October 4, 1940 in Dayton Ohio, and as far as I am able to tell is still living as of the time of this listing. Here's a short blurb about the artist that I found online...
A Professor Emeritus from the School of Art at Northern Illinois University, Bilder’s work has been displayed in exhibits around the world and has been added to permanent collections at institutions such as the Art Institute of Chicago and the Central University of Queensland, Australia. Major invitational exhibits such as the Illinois Arts Council’s Congressional Exhibition in Washington, D.C. have also featured her art. Bilder received her bachelor’s degree in painting from IWU and continued her studies at La Romita School of Art in Terni, Italy; the Art Institute of Chicago; and Southern Illinois University, where she received a master’s degree in painting.
In addition, I have also included a screen grab of some more of her accomplishments as the last photo for this listing.
A very attractive artwork in the original period frame matte and under glass, this lithograph measures 27-3/8" by 18-1/4" at the outside of the frame, and the image area that shows inside the matting measures 19-3/4" by 12". Of course, no doubt the lithograph extends beneath the matting, and there may be additional information given if you were to examine it outside of the frame and glass, which I haven't done.
Please note that I have photographed this artwork in it's frame and under the glass, so there are reflections in my images that are not part of the original image. This is most noticeable as shadows in some of the images, although my first image is the least marred by these reflections. The artwork is signed numbered and titled at the bottom front by hand in pencil as shown. Marked "Ragged Fortune Teller" numbered "9/14" and signed "Dorothea A. Bilder". Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear to the outside of the frame and some wear to the back papers as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
