Pierre Alechinsky and Sol LeWitt, two recent acquisitions.

alechinsky-france-a

Remember that a few weeks ago i mentioned that there was some great art out there to be picked up….and what is more..at very reasonable prices.

Last week i acquired from a small collection 2 beautiful books. Both folio sized and containing some of the best art you can imagine. First of all there is the Alechinsky publication, he made for his galerie de France exhibition in 1962. The cover is a spectacular 2 page original lithograph by Alechinsky. The book s published in an edition of only 2000 copies, numbered ( numero 460)  and beside the cover containing another 8 original 1 page lithographs printed by Maurice Beaudet. Price USD 275,– which makes it only USD 28,00 per lithograph. Excellent publication and when you use the code: alechinskyblog…. a discount of USD 25.00 is applied to the purchase of this beautiful publication .

Secondly there is the NOISE 7 publication by Maeght editeur.

When Maeght finished their Derriere Le Miroir series, they tried to launch an even better series….NOISE…. only far less volumes were published than within their DLM series. The NOISE 7 is arguably the very best volume within the series ,because it contains the lithographed contributions by Karel Appel ( 5x a one page lithograph ) and Sol LeWitt ( 3x a double page lithograph). Original great works of art at low prices is what there is out there and these are two excellent examples and proof that great art has not to be expensive.
