GEORGE SEGAL mixed media silkscreen and original record disk is from the legendary New York Collection for Stockholm Portfolio, issued to commemorate the collection of paintings and sculpture by top New York artists of the 1960s, assembled by Hulten and Kluver for the Moderna Museet Museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
It is Pop Art sculptor George Segal's homage to legendary French DADA and Surrealist artist Marcel Duchamp.
The roster of artists included in the New York Collection for Stockholm portfolio, of which this is a part, is a Who's Who of the New York art world during one of its most influential decades: Lee Bontecou, John Chamberlain, Walter De Maria, Jim Dine, Mark di Suvero, Dan Flavin, Red Grooms, Hans Haacke, Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol Lewitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Louise Nevelson, Kenneth Noland, Claes Oldenburg, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, James Rosenquist, George Segal, Richard Serra, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol and others.
This original work of art rarely seen at public auction because so many of the individual artists' prints from the portfolio, as well as the complete portfolios, are in major museum and public collections around the world - like MOMA, the Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian American Museum, Moderna Museet, the Walker Art Center - to name only a few.
