John Levee Lithograph

John Levee lithograph. Circa 1955-60. 26" x 20" inches. Signed artist's proof ("epreuve d'artiste"). Edition size unknown, but other Levee prints from the era seem to be in the 20-50 range (his "A Preface and Four Seasons" portfolio from 1959 was issued in an edition of 150, plus an hors commerce aside of 20).

Very good condition. Some minor toning at the edges, and the paper is rough at the edges, presumably as issued.

Levee, an American who has long lived as an expat in France. is one of my favorite abstract expressionist / lyrical abstraction artists of the late Fifties. This is a great, chaotic, dramatic print.
