The Falconer

This 1991 hand painted, paper mache box measures 3 inches wide, 5 1/2 inches tall and is 1 1/2 inches deep. It is initialed and dated l.l.

Color Abstract

This is a great original color lithograph, pencil signed, dated, and inscribed 'epreuve d'artiste' (artist's proof), but we have been unable to decipher the signature. The image size is 12 x 21 1/4 inches, 1979, with a stamp from the "Ministerio de Cultura Y Educacion" of Spain on the back of the sheet. This is a very cool, abstract composition with vibrant colors; the style looks quite familiar to us, but we have been unable to confidently attribute this print to a specific artist.
