Caviar20 is especially enthusiastic about Harold Town's "Superstar" series of lithographs.

We are excited to be offering a selection of hard-to-find examples including Yoko Ono, Marilyn Monroe/Marlene Dietrich and Gracie Slick

Charlie Chaplin was one of the Superstars that Town was particularly inspired by, depicting him several times.

This work "Charlie Chaplin and Edna Purvience" is an interpretation of the couple from their famous 1916 film "The Fireman"

One of Chaplin's most beloved films, today the film is available as a free download - an amazing viewing experience if interested in the history of cinema.

Harold Town's reputation was established in the late 1950's with a series of unique prints ("Single Autographic Prints") that included elements of collage. In 1956, he represented Canada at the Venice Biennale with these works. 

Over the course of the following decades, Town continued to reinvent his aesthetic, regularly changing medium and mood.

While often associated with Painters Eleven, he was also a master printmaker. 

Throughout his lengthy career he repeatedly returned to printmaking to create significant and memorable bodies of work.
