Not a huge number, but we have had this for a while

And have several Casson prints including




Good stuff, Ken B. I don't really know Casson and the only other of that group I'm at all familiar with is Frederick Varly.

Submitted a successful bid for this print by Manuel Ángeles Ortiz at an auction here in Madrid in mid-July:





And what about you, ritter, how are you getting on with this? Are you living with it on a daily basis?

Oh yes, it’s doing its job splendidly! Thanks for asking.  :)

Since I bought it, it has some companions...

Two woodcuts by Raoul Dufy (as reported in the avatar thread):

 

And a late (1959)  lithograph by Georges Braque (my copy being inscribed by the artist to Fernand Mourlot, the man who ran the workshop where most of the leading artists in Paris in the mid-20th century created their work in the lithographic medium):

You're welcome.


Interesting purchases as ever - and the unique feature of the Braque litho making it particularly cool. Good stuff.

Received now. An excellent book:

As is this:

Nemon sculpted Churchill many times but the cover shows Churchill's one and only sculpture - his portrait of Oscar Nemon.

Do this stuff count?  ;D



I've a few of these large format glass slides of ballet backdrop curtains and stage sets. This recent purchase is from the 1930s and by Dufy for a Ballet Russe (MkII) production called 'Beach' (or 'Palm Beach') to music by Jean Françaix.
It's needing cleaned and after I do so will look great. Think of the image quality when 35mm film is projected in a cinema, then realise this slide is about four inches long on the same side, so with the right lens (and powerful enough bulb) it'll almost appear you can step in to it - and I have lenses/bulbs meeting that description.

Here's the original design (or at least one of them) for a general idea -

A big +1....

Great stuff, NikF. And archetypal of Raoul Dufy's work: the sailboats, the ponies, the seashells...  Wonderful!  :)

Great stuff. Love Dufy’s colorful work.

In 1922, Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro (initiator of the creationist aesthetic movement, and known to some music lovers because one of his texts was set by Edgar Varèse in his Offrandes), exhibited 13 "painted poems" in the Théâtre Édouard VII in Paris. The idea was for these works to be published using the pochoir (or stencil) technique, but the project didn't come to fruition.

In 2001, the Reina Sofía Museum here in Madrid recreated the 1922 event, and for the occasion issued the surviving works (12 in total, including some poems in two versions) in a limited edition folder of serigraphs on high-quality Arches paper, respecting the original dimensions (73 x 53 cm). I've been lucky enough to buy one set from the museum.
