A 2011 New York Times obituary on John Chamberlain, paid tribute to him as an artist who wrested Rough Magic from Scrap Metal, declaring that he almost singlehandedly gave automotive metal a place in the history of sculpture, smashing and twisting together a poetic fusion of Abstract Expressionism and Pop from fenders, fins, bumpers and hoods. Chamberlains work is in the collections of dozens of museums, including the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art and Dia:Beacon in Beacon, N.Y.; in 2011 an earlier work of his sold at auction for $4.7 million, a record for his work, which continues to achieve high watermarks in public and private sales.
Guaranteed AUTHENTIC original vintage poster. Not a later reprint.
A superb and highly collectible piece of art historical ephemera.
