JOEL BECK (1944-1999).
"Fantasy Round-Up" Art Print.
Print on textured paper, most likley from
a Beck portfolio (Print Mint or Apple Mary?) circa mid-1960s.
Dimensions: 10 inches x 14 inches. The plate is similar
to themes in Beck's Visions and Dreams: 1963-73, A
Portfolio of Fantasy Drawings, but it does not match and
is on different paper. We do not have information on the particular
portfolio this apparently comes from, but two apparent companion
pieces, listed here as "Mountain Path" and "Serpentine
Trail," are the identical size and on identical paper, with
the first two sharing a common theme: mystery riders on fantasy
creatures enduring long treks to reach mysterious futuristic
destinations. The plate is neither signed or dated but
is almost certainly from the mid-'60s. The original
art for this image (2 piece Lot) is available elsewhere
in the web gallery.
Slight curl in upper left corner. Half-inch cluster of pinpoint-size
brown spots at bottom front edge, a few other light brown spots
to be from the collection of a childhood friend of
