HAROLD TOWN "GRACIE SLICK" FRAMED LITHO, 1970
Gracie Slick is a true rock n'roll icon; an emblem of the psychedelic sixties and hippie seventies.
She was one of the first female rock stars, eclipsing Janis Joplin and later having a huge influence on Patti Smith and Stevie Nicks.
Her stylized portrait by Harold Town (1924-1990) is one of the sexiest and memorable lithographic prints from his "Superstar" series.
Town's reputation was established in the late 1950's with a series of unique prints ("Single Autographic Prints") that included elements of collage. Throughout his lengthy career he completed significant and memorable bodies of work as a print maker.
Over the decades, Town continued to reinvent his aesthetic, change medium and mood. He was appropriately dubbed as the "Picasso of Canada" for his versatile and perennial creativity.
Caviar20 is especially fond of the "Superstar" series and is excited to be offering a selection of hard-to-find examples including Yoko Ono, Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable & Joan Crawford.
