This limited edition poster has been signed & numbered 2/40 in pencil by the artist, Robert Crumb!

 

We are thrilled to offer the collecting community this SIGNED, Original 24-color, limited edition serigraph for the FIRST TIME in our auction! This unique and rare Robert Crumb piece measures over two feet square. Crumb is UNQUESTIONABLY the most famous and collected illustrator of the 1960's. He has said he owes his artistry as much to American roots music as to cartooning influences. The legendary artist demonstrated his gratitude with a small batch of record album cover art for Yazoo Records - Anthology LPs, featuring blues & jazz artists. 

 

This is a signed limited edition "Harmonica Blues" serigraph, numbered 2 of only 40 produced of this incredible 24-color poster! The artwork is a delicate combination of ink and watercolors. The deckle-edged Wildwood Serigraph paper stock has a texture very like fine-grained watercolor paper. The piece is signed and numbered in Crumb's distinctive cursive handwriting. The large image area is 21" x 21", creating a treasure worthy of being displayed proudly in one's home.

 

Crumb was one of the originators of the underground comix movement and beloved across the globe. His art is highly irreverent ... often vulgar ... and constantly pushing the boundaries of acceptability. Collectors take notice when a signed piece like this becomes available. Other examples of this special, low run numbered edition are virtually IMPOSSIBLE to locate, and when they have rarely surfaced, they have received strong bids and heavy interest from collectors. Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot!
