ROBERT INDIANA, COLBY ART TONDO, 1973
This extremely rare edition is pencil signed and numbered from the edigion of only 50. The print is called "Colby Art Tondo" - tondo meaning "round" (rotondo). It is a smaller editioned variation on Robert Indiana's 1973 silkscreen called "Colby Art", which was created in an edition of 100. Both of these Colby Art Prints were based on a poster that Indiana designed for an exhibition at Colby College, Waterville, Maine. In these images, Indiana place the word "ART" within a circular format for the first time.
In original 1970s aluminum metal frame. Not examined outside of frame but appears to be in very good condition.
