A lithograph titled in pencil in margin at lower left "Algerian Caravan", and pencil signed and numbered at lower right margin, by the noted western Michigan (Muskegon area) artist WILFRED "WALLY" BERG (1908-2002). Measurements are 15 1/2" by 19 1/2". The complex image features a caravan of camels and burros, led by their handlers, descending a steep mountain trail to a valley in Algeria, where the artist served during the Second World War. Berg was born in Muskegon, the second oldest of 11 children. Artistic talent was evident early on, and he continued to develop his skills, attending the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida (where he spent many winters) after the war. Berg created dioramas for the Muskegon County Museum, and the Muskegon Museum of Art records 74 of his works in the collection, most featuring scenes of dunes and woodland and farms in western Michigan. This print apparently dating to the 1940's, is currently without glass and as found in an inappropriate white frame with yellow liner. The print should be shipped between boards without the frame entirely. It is in reasonably good condition, considering the lack of glass. The paper is generally puckered and a little rumpled/lightly creased at left and right margins, and there are small brown stains at top margin and at right margin. Properly framed and mounted this will attain its full decorative potential. I will be listing a watercolor by the artist, also of a North African scene.
