Wheel and Stripes, 1970 - Alexander Calder

Alexander Calder Wheel and Stripes, 1970

Mr. Ray, 1975 -

Mr. Ray, 1975
This original lithograph is hand signed in pencil "Ed Ruscha", verso.
It is hand numbered in pencil with Roman numerals, verso. Our impression is one of 20 artist’s proofs aside from the edition of 100.
The lithograph was published by L. Anselmino, Torino in 1975.
The paper bears the Anselmino blindstamp in the lower right corner.

Note:
From the early 1970s Ruscha began to turn away from his iconic Gas Station Americana and started making drawings and paintings of single words or short phrases placed against soft unmodulated backgrounds. They all appear as the main focal point, appealing to the artist for both their visual and phonetic forms but they also took on paradoxical resonance in isolation from their mundane contexts.
Another impression from this edition is held in the joint collections of The National Galleries of Scotland and Tate Modern, London.

Note:
In the 1950/60s Picasso reverts to the previously disregarded technique of linocut. The painter introduces the colour in the principally black and white graphics and produces six plates, one for each colour. This linocut shows a colourful and ornamental variation of 'Le Vieux Roi', a well-known subject of Picasso’s later works.
