Pencil signed and numbered from the limited editio of 225. This important 1960s silkscreen is by Brazilian-born Swedish Pop/Conceptual artist Oyvind Fahlstrom from the New York International Portfolio, Volume I, 1966. Fahlstrom's prints from the mid 1960s, like this one featuring a cutout image of Chairman Mao, are desirable and quite uncommon. A descendant of Surrealism, he actively incorporated chance into art. For his format and imagery, Fahlstrom borrowed heavily from popular culture sources, continuously drawing from his vast files of magazine photographs and comic books. Another impression of this print is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art. This work is in excellent condition and has never been framed.
