1957 Lithograph Clara Klinghoffer Sketch Art Man Reading Frank Bros New AEF6
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.
Period Paper has obtained an extraordinary, ultra-rare collection of original lithographs by some of the premier graphic 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 edition, and included just 2,000. These lithographs are perhaps the most unique, rare, important advertising collectibles that exist for businesses and corporations.

Clara Klinghoffer displayed artistic talent at the age of fourteen, and although her family was poor, Klinghoffer was sent to the John Cass Institute in Aldgate. Klinghoffer became well known and had her work purchased by the Tate Gallery and National Portrait Gallery. In 1939, Klinghoffer and her family moved to the United States after discovering that Third Reich spies had been planted in her household staff. In America, Klinghoffer refused to join the abstract movement and referred to it as the Òsplatter and dripÓ art approach.
