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.
Irving Marantz (1912-1972) was a native of Elizabeth, New Jersey, prior to relocating to New York, where he received his formal art education at the Art Student League. He is most recognized for his abstract style, sculptures, as well as his still life, figure and landscape subjects. MarantzÕs works have been exhibited at the International Carnegie Institute, the Corcoran Gallery of Washington, D. C., the Audubon Society of Artists, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Whitney Museum and more. Some of his bronze sculptures are located on Park Avenue in Manhattan, the Brooklyn Museum Art School and the Jewish Community Center in Bayonne, New Jersey. Later, Marantz taught at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. He was also the director of the Princetown Art Association and Museum. Marantz was also a member of the WPA Federal Arts Project and the American Federation of Arts.
