1953 Lithograph Claudine M Sussman Anamorphic Art Aziza Eye Cosmetics AEFA1

157466_AEFA1_038

This is an original 1953 monochrome lithograph by artist Claudine Sussman. Although intended to promote New York's Aziza Eye Cosmetics, this piece is so much more than a simple advertisement. The long lashes and flowing lines that stem from each eye are bizarre, yet so mesmerizing that it's almost difficult to look away from their squid-like forms.

This is a limited edition original lithograph, #1498 out of 2,000. Only the portfolio was numbered, not the individual lithograph's within it. This is not a lithograph "after" the artist. This lithograph was created by the original artist on the lithograph plate, and is, therefore, a true original lithograph. The artists used either litho crayon, ink, or tusche when creating their art works on the plates.

Period Paper has obtained an extraordinary, ultra-rare collection of original lithographs by some of the premier artists of the 1950's. These lithographs were produced for an annual art event in the 1950's for local businesses and major corporations largely based in New York. Historically important for corporate archivists, these are extremely rare to locate and are virtually unseen individually. The original lithographs were produced in only one limited edition, and included just 2,000. These lithographs are perhaps the most unique, rare, important advertising collectibles that exist for businesses and corporations.

This piece was illustrated by Sussman, Claudine M. . Artist signature in print - bottom left of image.
