Milton Glaser
Vintage Bob Dylan Souvenir Poster (Milton Glaser Bob Dylan 1960s)

c.1967

About the Item

Original 1967 Milton Glaser Fold Out Poster for Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits. Offset lithograph printed in colors 33 x 22 in (83.82 x 55.88 cm) Fold lines as issued; very good vintage condition. Description: This iconic, “psychedelic,” Milton Glaser poster for Bob Dylan’s “Greatest Hits” LP was released in 1967. Glaser was inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s self-portrait in 1957, altering it by adding rainbow-colored, kaleidoscopic curls on top of the dark and elusive silhouette. Echoing stylistic qualities of Art Nouveau and in line with his dictum “Just enough is more.” Milton Glaser also invented his own typeface for the single word “DYLAN.” Designed to be folded and packaged into each album, this poster became one of the most widely popular of all time. Legendary graphic designer, illustrator, and art director Milton Glaser created some of the most recognizable iconography in America today —including the iconic I ♥ N Y logo —and countless posters and ad campaigns. Glaser changed the face of commercial art in the 1960s and ’70s, breaking with the conventions of modernism and drawing inspiration from a wide variety of art-historical and pop-cultural sources, from Art Nouveau to comic illustration and Chinese drawings. As a co-founder of New York magazine, Glaser designed its signature header, and his brightly colored illustrations graced dozens of glossy magazine covers. His promotional poster for _Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hit_s —a simple silhouette of the artist’s head with a colorful mop of thick, wavy hair —was endlessly reproduced, and its psychedelic aesthetic came to define late ’60s visual culture.

  • Large American Pop Art Color Abstract Lithograph "Black Tie" James Rosenquist
    By James Rosenquist
    Located in Surfside, FL
    Black Tie, 1977 James Rosenquist, American, 1933–2017. Printed by Maurice Sanchez at Derrière L'Étoile Studios, Inc. Published by Sidney Singer Color lithograph on rolled white Arches Cover paper Blindstamp of a man in a hat, bottom right Hand signed in pencil. Dated 1977 lower right. Titled and numbered 76/100 lower left. Measures 73 1/2" x 37 James Rosenquist (November 29, 1933 – March 31, 2017) was an American artist and one of the proponents of the pop art movement. Drawing from his background working in sign painting, Rosenquist's pieces often explored the role of advertising and consumer culture in art and society, utilizing techniques he learned making commercial art to depict popular cultural icons and mundane everyday objects. While his works have often been compared to those from other key figures of the pop art movement, such as Andy Warhol, JIm Dine and Roy Lichtenstein, Rosenquist's pieces were unique in the way that they often employed elements of surrealism using fragments of advertisements and cultural imagery to emphasize the overwhelming nature of ads. He was a 2001 inductee into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame. Rosenquist was born on November 29, 1933, in Grand Forks, North Dakota, the only child of Louis and Ruth Rosenquist. His parents were amateur pilots of Swedish descent who moved from town to town to look for work, finally settling in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His mother, who was also a painter, encouraged her son to have an artistic interest. In junior high school, Rosenquist won a short-term scholarship to study at the Minneapolis School of Art and subsequently studied painting at the University of Minnesota from 1952 to 1954. In 1955, at the age of 21, he moved to New York City on scholarship to study at the Art Students League, studying under painters such as Edwin Dickinson and George Grosz. Talking about his experience at the Art Students League, Rosenquist said "I studied only with the abstract artists. They had commercial artists there teaching commercial work, I didn't bother with that. I was only interested in -- see, here's how it started. I was interested in learning how to paint the Sistine Chapel. It sounds ambitious, but I wanted to go to mural school". While studying in New York, Rosenquist took up a job as a chauffeur, before deciding to join the International...

  • Once in a Lifetime (rare theatrical poster designed by Ed Ruscha in 1975) Framed
    By Ed Ruscha
    Located in New York, NY
    Ed Ruscha Once in a Lifetime, 1975 Offset lithograph poster on thin board Plate signature on the side, to the right of the Moss Hart and George Kaufman movie slate; also bears Ed Ruscha's printed name and copyright Frame included: This work is elegantly floated and framed in a museum quality white wood frame with UV plexiglass Measurements: 24.5 inches vertical by 16.5 by 1.5 inches 22 inches vertical by 16 inches Publisher Music Center, Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum, Los Angeles, CA This incredibly scarce poster was designed by Ed Ruscha for the 1975-6 season theatrical production of the famed 1930s play "Once in a Lifetime" by the duo Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, at the Music Center, Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum, Los Angeles, CA. The play was a satirical send up of Hollywood as the first all-talking motion pictures replaced silent films. It was so cleverly written that the play continued to be produced throughout the rest of the 20th century. The poster has the printed text: EDWARD RUSCHA, followed by his copyright and the year (1975) on the front. Ed Ruscha is an artist whose entire career has been preoccupied with the theme of the fall of the American empire -- so it seems apt that he would design the poster for Once in a Lifetime, which mocks the fantasy of Hollywood and the American dream. More about the history and writers behind the production "Once in a Lifetime": Moss Hart and George Kaufman It's winter of 1928 and the biggest news in entertainment is the whopping success of Al Jolson in The Jazz Singer, the first all-talking picture. A down-at-heels vaudeville troupe—the ascerbic May Daniels, the fast-talking Jerry Hyland, and their slightly dopey cohort, George Lewis, the "best deadpan feeder in the business—decide to make their fortune by going Hollywood. The only problem is: they don't know what they're going to do out there. That's all right: no one knows anything in Hollywood either. The trio pretends to be a team of skilled vocal coaches and, with the help of Lotusland's greatest gossip columnist, Helen Hobart, they find themselves working for Herman Glogauer, the volatile producer behind Glogauer Pictures. Glogauer doesn't know what to do about his actors in talkies: "Things were going along fine. You couldn't stop making money—even if you made a good picture, you made money." Mistakenly thinking that dimwitted George is a visionary genius, Glogauer makes him head of production, and George obliges him by making the worst picture ever made. Yet, even this comedic satire has a Hollywood ending: George makes the studio a success despite himself and finds the girl of his dreams, while May and Jerry fall into each other's arms. Fade-out: the end. There had been very few plays about Hollywood—and even fewer satires—when the 24-year-old Moss Hart approached George S. Kaufman in 1929 with a first draft called Once in a Lifetime. Kaufman leapt at the chance to collaborate with the first-time writer and, although neither man had been to Hollywood, they had been inundated with enough fatuous material in the press and with enough dopey movies to take a crack at satirizing the film colony. Their gifts for poking Hollywood in its collective eye were so sharp that, 75 years later, Once in a Lifetime remains the granddaddy of all Tinseltown comedies (Singin' in the Rain borrows heavily from it) and is arguably still the best. Certainly as a gag-filled, glamorous, dynamic portrait of the idiocies of the film industry at its peak, this comedy cannot be topped. The road to Broadway was not an easy one, however, as Hart chronicled brilliantly in his 1959 memoir, Act One. Kaufman not only cowrote the script, but directed it as well and played the supporting part of the cynical and despairing East Coast playwright, Lawrence Vail. During the play's tryouts, Kaufman thought the show was a lost cause, but Hart prevailed and they roared into the Music Box Theater with a huge hit. The play's success made Hart's reputation (he would go on to play Vail in a Los Angeles production) and the partnership of Kaufman and Hart was off to a resounding start. In a gesture not often seen in the frequently ungenerous world of the theater, George Kaufman announced at the opening night curtain call that "80% of this show is Moss Hart." Once in a Lifetime opened at the Music Box Theatre on September 24, 1930 and ran for 305 performances. It was eventually filmed in 1932, although industry wags wondered how any film producer would have the guts to put it on screen. (Universal producer Carl Laemmle affixed his signature to a title card saying the industry had "the ability to laugh at itself.") The show's immense size kept it off the boards for many years (although an intriguing item in Variety in 1954 claimed that Hart was going to rewrite it as a musical spoof of 3-D for Phil Silvers), until the Royal Shakespeare Company produced a smash revival in 1977 with Zoe Wanamaker and Richard Griffiths. A 1978 Broadway revival at Circle in the Square, starring John Lithgow and Treat Williams restored the show's reputation in the States and many repertory theaters have produced it since, including the Guthrie Theatre...
