Larry Rivers
Happy 20th Birthday Lincoln Center

1979

About the Item

Larry Rivers Happy 20th Birthday Lincoln Center, 1979 Lithograph on wove paper Hand signed, numbered 80 from the limited edition of 108 and dated on the front by Larry Rivers 26 × 35 inches Unframed This hand signed and numbered limited edition lithograph was commissioned by the prestigious Vera List print program in NYC which invited artists to create works that would help fundraise for Lincoln Center, which many New Yorkers consider the cultural center of the city. This is Larry Rivers' clever homage to Lincoln Center - a celebration of its 20th birthday - where the enter complex is a cake with candles - a distinctive combination of Pop and figurative that characterizes the artists style. Unframed and in very good condition. An artist, musician, filmmaker and occasional actor, Larry Rivers was best known as a revolutionary - deliberately opposing the prevailing movements of the time for the thrill of challenging the status quo. In a career which spanned over 50 years, he is consistently identified as a Pop Art pioneer and one of most important artists in the figurative tradition.

  • China (gorgeous silkscreen on lanaquarelle from renowned artist's map series)
    By Paula Scher
    Located in New York, NY
    Paula Scher China, 2013 Hand pulled silkscreen on deluxe Lanaquarelle paper 24 3/5 × 28 1/5 inches Edition of 95 Pencil signed and numbered on the front Unframed Paula Scher Biography Renowned graphic designer and artist Paula Scher's silkscreen China, from her map series, represents a subjective take on the country’s superpower status. Through the visual vibrancy of information overload in the print, Scher captures the swift transformations taking place in a country steeped with a rich cultural and historical fabric. The multi-directional, scrawled names of sites and statistics speaks to China’s complicated history, from its imperial age of dynasties and warlord conquests, to the violent tumult of its communist conversion. Paula Scher is one of the most influential graphic designers in the world. Described as the “master conjurer of the instantly familiar,” Scher straddles the line between pop culture and fine art in her work. Iconic, smart, and accessible, her images have entered into the American vernacular. Scher has been a partner in the New York office of Pentagram since 1991. She began her career as an art director in the 1970s and early 80s, when her eclectic approach to typography became highly influential. In the mid-1990s her landmark identity for The Public Theater...
