Max Beckmann original lithograph for Improvisations | Artists Equity 1950 Spring Fantasia
$300.00
Max Beckmann lithograph for Improvisations | Artists Equity Ball
Medium: original lithograph. This print is from the very rare 1950 "Improvisations" portfolio, published by the Artists Equity Association of New York on the occasion of the 1950 Spring Fantasia Masquerade Ball at the Hotel Astor. Leading artists on the New York art scene were invited to contribute original lithographs in the form of advertisements for businesses and institutions supporting the Artists Equity Association; these sponsors allowed the artists complete creative freedom of expression. Indeed, it is said that annual Spring Fantasia Masquerade Balls were very wild affairs!

This lithograph was issued in an edition of 2000 and is printed on watermarked, tinted laid paper; the sheet measures 11 5/8 x 8 3/4 inches (295 x 220 mm). Signed by Max Beckmann in the stone (not hand-signed). Beckmann taught at the Brooklyn Museum Art School at the end of his life, and died in 1950, so this is one of his last original prints.
