The works of Algerian/American artist Jean Sariano capture the bold, refreshing and imaginative perspective that flourished in pop art of the 1970. This delightful print was created in 1970, when Saviano was finishing his studies at the Printmaking Workshop in NYC. This print, “Where are you going, Monsieur Blum,” consists of 9 icons in a grid in bright orange and red on heavy white paper (watermarked). The print is no. 60 of 100 and is pencil signed in the lower right. Paper size is 16” X 16” (approx.); printed area is 12” X 12” (approx.). It is in very good vintage condition, with very slight discoloration of paper consistent with its age.
Please note that the price and shipping stated is for the print only (not including the frame). I do have the original frame, which I will be happy to include for an additional $10 shipping charge; it is a metal-wrapped wood frame in good vintage condition. I like keeping the original frame with the work, but that’s not important to everyone.
