    About The Work

    This is a rare, striking etching from the early '60s, in an hors commerce edition of only 10 in Roman Numerals, (III/X) aside from the regular edition of 50 - which makes it even more rare as it was originally not available for sale. The work is in the vintage 1960s frame with the J.L. Hudson Gallery label on the verso. It came from the J.L. Hudson Gallery, founded in 1963 by Joseph L. Hudson, the president of the Detroit based J.L. Hudson Company. Hudson is credited with bringing the highest caliber modernist art to the Detroit areas. The legendary Albert Landry, who had previously owned a gallery in New York, was hired as its first director. This print is fully referenced in the catalogue raisonne of Alechinsky's printed works.
