This lithograph print on quality Arches paper addresses the universally fascinating topic of aging. Two old, stooped women at right walking arm in arm on the street in the old world manner stare at a young attractive woman in an ultra-short mini dress walking in the other direction. The print (22" by 25" inside the mat, and 25" by 291/2" in a simple metal frame under non clear glass is signed in the margin in pencil at lower right by the internationally recognized artist Aldo Luongo (1940-), and it bears the notation "AP" (artist proof) at lower left. The image was printed in 1978 in New York at Atelier Ettinger. The total edition of this image is 250 numbered prints, 50 artist proofs, of which this is one, and 25 deluxe impressions on Japon paper. Aldo Luongo, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1940, has come to be an enormously successful and popular artist on the commercial gallery scene, with many signed prints offered in the marketplace on a number of continents, as well as a sprinkling of original acrylic paintings and some drawings. Online biographies describe his strong creative impulses, special fascination with soccer (which he played professionally) and other sports, and his travels in Italy, Spain, and America. Most but certainly not all of Luongo's works feature genre and figures, often in romantic associations. See, on the net, many images of the artist's other works. The print is in excellent, clean condition, the glass on one of corners has some small chip.
