This scarce early (1966) limited edition collotype was published on the occasion of the exhibition "Recent Still Life" at the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design. The regular unsigned edition was 2100, and the official signed edition was 100; however, exceptionally, Jasper Johns signed and dated the present work on August 27, 2008, at the time of his exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in New York City. Hand signed and dated works like the present one are coveted; not too many remain. The work has fine provenance as it was acquired from the Estate of the artist and noted collector Rick Collar. It is held in the original frame and ready to hang. Ships framed.
Signed and dated lower right front by Jasper Johns in graphite pencil August, 2008
