    A mid century original coloured lithograph by the Italian artist Marino Marini, titled ‘Le Sacre du Printemps’, printed by the well known French printers studio Mourlot in Paris in 1973.

    ‘Le Sacre du Printemps’ (The Rite of Spring) is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. It was the source of inspiration for this artwork by Marini.

    One of Italy’s most celebrated sculptors of the 20th century, Marino Marini primarily produced figurative bronze sculptures, though his practice also included paintings, drawings and etchings. Marini drew on the tradition of Etruscan and northern European sculpture, reinterpreting classical themes such as the female nude, the portrait bust, and the equestrian figure, which he combined with aspects of modernism—in particular exaggerated and elongated forms. Towards the end of his career Marini’s sometimes-monumental sculptures became increasingly abstracted. On trips to Paris and New York, he associated with Giorgio de ChiricoJean ArpMax Beckmann, and Alexander Calder, among other major modernist artists.

    This coloured lithograph is housed in a simple gilt frame that suits it perfectly. The print is framed behind glass. Both print and frame are in good vintage condition.

    A large and very well executed 1959 limited edition (28/30) lithograph, signed by Waldemar Sjölander.

    The artist uses  tonal gradation, outlines, and shapes to create this playful composition. The figure is fragmented into several three dimensional forms, and plays on optical illusion. The artist converges the shadows of the figure with its three dimensional form, teasing our eyes which weave in and out of the shapes.

    This mid century print is laid onto a white mount, and housed behind glass in a very complementary gilt frame. Both print and frame are in good vintage condition.

    A wonderfully fun and playful original artist’s proof lithograph, signed by Leif Sylvester and inscribed ‘E.A’ (épreuve d’artiste) to the bottom.

    An artist proof print has a connection to limited edition prints. These prints are used as a test print by the artist and kept for their personal collection. Traditionally the artist would take the proof straight off the printing press and amend the colours and quality. Then, once the artist was happy with the proof, they would then proceed with the limited edition print.

    Artist Proofs are generally valued higher than other prints in the edition, due to the rarity and small quantity of them. Oftentimes the Artist Proof are altered from the final edition, creating a uniqueness to them that is very desirable.

    This lithograph is housed behind glass in a complementary silver frame. Both print and frame are in good vintage condition.
