Lithograph, 8 3/8" by 19 1/2" (16" by 27" as framed), signed at right by the well-known artist PIERRE ALECHINSKY (1927-), numbered 17/100 (17/200)??---hard to read---and inscribed in ball point pen along the bottom by the artist: "A Monsieur et Madame Arnold L. Gindsburg pour leur gentille collaboration (can't read) de L'Art Club of Chicago" and dated "le 26 5 65". This is a modern image of dream-like creatures and faces of the imagination. The artist is a major figure in late 20th century art's CoBra movement. His oils sell for significant amounts of money at major sales by Sotheby's, Christie's and elsewhere. This print is in clean condition with exception of a creased upper right corner. I removed this from the frame for inspection and saw that it is either printed on the reverse side of some kind of glossy paper poster, or is on paper laid to that poster---in any event, something is actually printed on the reverse side, apparently another image by Alechinsky, with words "Last Day" in the imagery. I have attempted to determine the title of the work but did not see it in the books I perused on Alechinsky's work, and I do not have access to a catalog raisonne. Allow for some reflections in a few images. Contact me for shipping to Europe options.
