LINCOLN CENTER/VERA LIST PROGRAM (SIGNED), 1992-2016
Offset Lithograph Poster (HAND SIGNED AND DATED)
17 × 40 in
43.2 × 101.6 cm
This offset lithograph was printed in 1992 by the Vera List print program to raise funds for Lincoln Center. However, exceptionally it was boldly signed and dated in black marker in 2016 by Alex Katz. Alex Katz recently signed this for us personally at a private reception held in his honor at the American University Art Museum in Washington, D.C. on December 2, 2016 - so provenance is direct and irrefutable. Buyer will be furnished with a copy of the program from that event -- a collectible in itself! EXTREMELY uncommon when hand signed by the artist. Very desirable and collectible with the Lincoln Center text on it -- would look great in any room or as a memorable gift! In fine condition, never framed. We took the Metroliner train from NYC with this larger poster in a tube, then we got on the DC Metro, then walked a mile in the cold - round trip to the American University Museum, then attended a private event and fascinating talk by Alex Katz on the occasion of the opening of his Black & White exhibition, and at the end we asked Alex Katz to sign for us, which he graciously did...And then did the same odyssey/journey back to NYC -- all on the same day! We did it for you -- so you don't have to do all that! A terrific value and a great present. No better provenance!
