About the Item

An original signed screenprint on white Arches 88 paper by American artist Richard Merkin (1938-2009) titled "Oedipus and Luxor", c. 1980. Hand pencil signed by Merkin lower right and numbered lower left. Limited edition: 260. Printed by Brand X Editions, New York, NY. Printer's chop mark/blind stamp lower right. Arches 88 France watermark lower left. Sheet size: 30" x 37.5". Image size: 24.25" x 32.25". In excellent condition. Richard Merkin’s (1938 – September 5, 2009) work conjures up scenes that evoke the raucous spirit of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. In his witty, often eccentric illustrations, Merkin depicts movie stars, jazz musicians, sports heroes and literary impresarios co-mingling with more personal references. In his highly stylized approach to the figure, Merkin privileges color relationships, balance and juxtaposition over strictly literal descriptions of his subjects. And humor; there’s always humor.
