IMPORTANT NOTE : This Ré ls a fine art Lithograph and was produced at S2 Atelier, New York City, ln 1997 under the auspices of the Re Society, ltd. It was inspired by a poster first created in 1932.
Pulled on Coventry paper, one color at a time from separate plates, this Image has been sequentially numbered in pencil in the lower left border, by a curator at S2 Editions.
The noted American chromist, David Copson, re-created the artist's Image by hand-drawing directly onto specially prepared surfaces that were transferred onto lithographic plates, one plate for each color.
'"The Mummy"" was printed on an old Dufa Il press under the supervision of the Atelier's Technical Director, Raymond Mazza The Size of the lithograph is 27x41 which is the same size as the vintage poster.
Great care was taken to precisely re-create the artist's original image. The chromist utilized as the model, original posters and other historical materials obtained through the Ré Society to insure that this Re-creation captures the feeling and style, as well as the color and size of the vintage work.
This Re bears the trademarks of the Re Society, plus the Imprimatur emblem of the S2 Atelier.
The signature of the chromist 1s printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish the Ré from the Original Golden Age poster.
Th1s Limited Lithograph preserves a classic work of art from the Golden Age of Posters
(1865-1939). It is a testament to the original Artist’s compelling vision and the painstaking artistry of David Copson and the contemporary artisans and chromists of S2 Editions.
From what we know and according to our sources, only a few prints were made. The man who created this entire project did not limit them to a set number, but between 50 and 300 of each were made. He passed away two years ago, and the remaining inventory was sold to another company.
Also Note that the Original poster was sold a few Years ago at $400 000 at Christies.
