First Run Lithograph Print (Edition under 2,000)
from Verve 1948
Teriade and Mourlot
(NOT a copy, reproduction, etc.)
Comes 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 Sun/Moon, first-run original lithograph is from Verve Volume VI, No 21 and 22, October 1948. It is a specially commissioned lithograph following the title page. The other illustrations in this issue are reproductions of Matisse's works from 1944-1948 in Vence.
Measures approximately 13 3/4" x 10 1/4" and includes a Charles Scott Gallery COA.
