    JOEL BECK (1944-1999). "Mountain Path" Art Print.

    Print on textured paper, most likley from a Beck portfolio (Print Mint?) 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 the portfolio this comes from, but two apparent companion pieces, listed here as "Fantasy Round-Up" and "Sepentine 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 futuristic architecture. The plate is neither signed or dated but is almost certainly from the mid-'60s.

    Condition: Serious darkening on edges, apparently from prolonged exposure to sunlight where affected. One-eighth inch brown spots on lower left. If matted properly virtually all of these flaws would be invisible. Not perfect but almost impossible to find. Provenance: Certified to be from the collection of a childhood friend of Beck.

    Price: $20.
