        Senza titolo. - Sans titre.

      1960 - Nasce a Bruxelles, ma per molti anni vive e lavora tra Bougival, zona visitata spesso da Renoir e il sud della Francia.\rNel 1944 frequenta l’Ecole nationale supérieure d’Architecture et des Arts décoratifs de La Cambre, a Bruxelles, dove studia tecniche di illustrazione, stampa e fotografia. Un anno dopo, nel 1945 scopre i lavori di Henri Michaux, Jean Dubuffet e diventa amico di un critico di un rinomato critico d’arte, Jacques Putman. Insieme a Karel Appel, Asger Jorn e Corneille fonda nel 1948 il gruppo CO.BR.A., che prende nome dalle iniziali delle loro città d’origine (Copenaghen, Bruxelles e Amsterdam). Con il gruppo partecipa ad entrambe le esposizioni. Nel 1951, si trasferisce a Parigi per studiare tecniche di stampa con una borsa di studio del governo francese e l’anno dopo approfondisce le sue conoscenze dell’incisione con Stanley William Hayter. Tre anni dopo, nel 1954, espone per la prima volta le sue opere a Parigi e inizia ad interessarsi alla calligrafia giapponese.\rIntorno al 1960 poi, esibì il suo talento, già affermato, a Londra, Berna e alla Biennale di Venezia; in seguito si esibì anche a Pittsburgh, New York, Amsterdam e a Silkeborg. Non appena la sua reputazione crebbe a livello internazionale, lavorò con Wallace Ting, mantenendo sempre stretti rapporti con Christian Dotremont. Allacciò poi i rapporti anche con André Breton. La sua fama internazionale continuò durante tutti gli anni ’70 e circa nel 1983 entrò nell’École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, a Parigi, come professore di pittura. Nel 1994 gli fu assegnato il titolo di Dottore Onorario dalla Université libre de Bruxelles e un anno dopo, nel 1995 uno dei suoi disegni venne stampato sui francobolli belgi.\rAttualmente Alechinsky vive a Bougival, in Francia, dove continua ancora a dipingere e a realizzare stampe e illustrazioni per libri. Si vende in cornice, esemplare n. 50/100. Firmato in basso a destra. Formato: Acquaforte di cm 19x27 Buono.

        FELLINI, FEDERICO, Director) LA DOLCE VITA (1960) Italian program

      Riama Film 1960 - Vintage original 10 ¼ x 12 ¾" (26 x 31 cm.) program; illustrated, saddle-stitched card wrappers, Italy. Rome: Riama Film, 1960. A striking and rare first-run program for what can easily be described as Fellini's most pivotal film, if not his finest. Unlike the more sentimental and abstract films that would follow, LA DOLCE VITA is an unflinching seven-day journey through 1960s Rome, with Mastroianni, a jaded journalist at the center of the story, constantly surrounded by revelry, beautiful women and a beautiful city, but no semblance of happiness or love. This deluxe program reflects Fellini's use of stark black-and-white throughout the film, with nights that are noirish and daytime sequences that are blindingly, uncomfortably bright. Throughout are lonely women, photographers, crowds, clubs, parties and general debauchery, with Mastroianni coming close enough to his humanity to touch it, but unable to do so. Especially rare to find an original Italian promotional book for this seminal Italian film. NEAR FINE with a couple of tiny stains. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Pablo Picasso signs a bullfight souvenir from the bullring at Nimes, France

      Signed "Picasso" on the reverse of a colorful circular paper originally folded and stapled to form a conical hat, 12" in diameter, c. 1960, depicting three stylized flamenco dancers with the legend: "Souvenir de la CORRIDA" ("Souvenir of the BULLFIGHT"). Vendors sold these hats at the entrance to the bullring to provide relief from the sun. Partial fold separation repaired with staples, creases and some moderate soiling. An excellent association piece, as Picasso was a great fan of bullfighting.
