Normally galerie Sothmann has the perfect “gallery eye” for new and upcoming artists. They were one of the first to recognize the importance of Jessurun de Mesquita, who taught Maurits Cornelis Escher the “trciks of the trade”.

With Sam Kaner they hit a miss. After raving reviews for the Kaner exhibition at the Guggenheim Palazza DEI LEONI in Venice they presented the works by Kaner in their Amsterdam gallery and sold, according to my information, none of the works within the exhibition from 1963.

What rests is this colorful exhibition poster they had made. Printed recto /verso with information on Kaner and his career and works. Kaner is well worth collecting nowadays and this scarce poster is no exception. ( poster available at www.ftn-books.com)
