This is a photo lithograph, 23" by 25" (plus framing 4 1/2" wide on a side), published by Frost and Reed in England in the year 1961, titled "Music of Serenity" on a partial label adhering to the frame. The artist, HOVSEP PUSHMAN (1877-1966) is considered a major artist, best known for his still life works incorporating oriental props like ceramic pieces, and his paintings command well into four figures at major New York auctions, with a handful exceeding $100,000, and one over $500,000. His hand signed prints through Frost & Reed were published since the late 1930's and today they are fairly commonly encountered. According to a wonderful biography of the artist on the site of art dealers Lawrence Cantor & Co., the artist authorized Frost and Reed to publish a series of 29 such prints over the years. This example is from the later part of his career and it is in good condition, with just some rusty spots in the lower margin. NOTE ALL PHOTOS WERE TAKEN THROUGH THE NONGLARE GLASS; ask for photos without the glass. There is a blind stamp also at lower left by the signature. The frame is suitably oriental in flavor, with a faux bamboo motif.
