James Rosenquist, 1933
Forest Ranger. 1967.
Original screenprint in colours on two mylar plastic sheets with cut slits, mounted to create a ‘mobile sculpture’ as issued. 1967. Scratch signed on the upper strip. Numbered 127 from the edition of 200 (plus 25 proofs). Issued for the portfolio 'Ten from Leo Castelli' to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Leo Castelli Gallery, 1967. Published by Tanglewood Press Inc., New York 1967.
Note: Rosenquist was a central and influential figure in the Pop Art movement. He exhibited with Lichtenstein, Warhol and Johns at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York in the 1960’s. Works from this most creative mid 1960’s period of his art rarely come on the market and this ground-breaking ‘mobile’ is an exceptional example.
Fine example with only two losses to the mylar. Due to the extreme fragility of the materials it is practically impossible to find any examples which have no damage at all. This example had never been displayed since the 1960’s Overall width: 51cm. Height: 61cm.
