About

HAPPY COUPLE is an original limited edition lithograph by the Dutch artist Karel Appel printed using hand lithography techniques on Somerset paper, 100% acid free. HAPPY COUPLE is a lively, imaginative, multi color abstract portrait consisting of warm yellows, radiant reds, plum magenta, purple, deep blues, light mint greens, with a black accentuating the abstract bodies and faces of a happy couple floating on a bold, yellow paint stroke background. Karel Appel was one of the founders of the avant-garde art movement CoBrA, active during the late 1940's thru early 1950's. His paintings are known for incorporating applications of vibrant, violent colors often possessing a primal, childlike quality. Print size - 21.5 x 29.5 Edition size - 175 Year published - 1979
