SENDAK: Jack And Guy – Sendak’s Only Drawn-On-STONE Lithograph, 1999
At Home With Jack And Guy. Original Lithograph. Corridor Press for Battledore Ltd, 1999. 原作
Original lithograph print measuring 14 x 19-1/2 inches, printed in two colors. Drawn by the artist directly on stone in 1993 and intended to accompany a deluxe version of We Are All In The Dumps With Jack And Guy (New York: HarperCollins), the project was eventually put aside and the fate of this image uncertain until publication was transferred to Battledore Ltd in 1999. With Mr. Sendak’s permission, we arranged with Timothy P. Sheesley of Corridor Press to produce 200 copies of this limited edition print on Rives Arches paper, each authenticated with their chop mark stamped on the lower left margin; numbered and signed by the artist (an additional 38 copies total were done as trial proofs, artist proofs, hors commerce, and bon à tirer). Accompanied by a printed certificate of tirage limitation.
The actual stone is now at The Rosenbach Museum & Library where it will be available for educational purposes but never again used for printing.
