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.
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.
