First Run Lithograph Print
Signed in the Plate from Verve 1938
Teriade and Mourlot
Newly conservation framed and double-matted, with a Charles Scott Gallery COA
The importance of Verve is not well known outside of the art world. Created by E. Teriade and printed by the world famous Mourlot, it was not simply a magazine (much like the more well known Derrier Le Miroir and XXe Siecle). It was an extremely limited art exhibit, containing FIRST RUN LITHOGRAPHS by 20th century masters. There were only 23 volumes of 38 issues released over the course of 23 years because of the quality and time taken to create each volume. And printing numbers ranged from around 6,500 down to 1,000.
This lithograph is from the second issue of Verve in 1938. It is unknown how many copies of that issue have survived.
Framed to approx. 17 3/8" x 23" in a black metal frame. Frame metal has a nice concave surface to add interest to the frame. Museum rag matting, UV/Anti-glare acrylic.
