        Sixth New York Film Festival (Original serigraph poster, one of 144 signed by Pearson)

      Lincoln Center / List Art Poster and Print Program, New York 1968 - Original serigraph designed by artist Henry Pearson for the Sixth New York Film Festival, held at Lincoln Center on September 17-28, 1968. One of 144 copies (this being No. 138) SIGNED and NUMBERED by Pearson.The New York Film Festival was founded in 1963 by Amos Vogel and Richard Roud, and to this day serves as a major taste-maker for American cinephiles, bringing the best films from around the world by directors established, new, and forgotten. The 1968 festival began with Jiri Menzel's "Capricious Summer," concluded with Milos Forman's "The Fireman's Ball" and featured "The Boy with the Green Hair" by Joseph Losey and "They Live By Night" by Nicholas Ray among its retrospective features.As influential and forward-thinking as the festival is, it is matched by its iconic poster designs. Developed by Vera List, a New York City art collector and philanthropist, the poster program commissioned some the most famous artist of the day to design posters that would function as much as art as advertisement. In addition to Pearson, artists who have designed posters for the festival include Larry Rivers, Saul Bass, Bruce Conner, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cindy Sherman.Amos Vogel (1921-2012) was one of the most influential cineastes in New York City. He is best known for his bestselling book "Film as a Subversive Art" (1974) and as the founder of the New York City avantgarde ciné-club Cinema 16 (1947-1963), where he was the first programmer to present films by Roman Polanski, John Cassavetes, Nagisa Oshima, Jacques Rivette and Alain Resnais as well as early and important screenings by American avant-gardists of the time like Stan Brakhage, Maya Deren, James Broughton, Kenneth Anger, Sidney Peterson, Bruce Conner, Carmen D'Avino and many others. In 1963, together with Richard Roud, he founded the New York Film Festival, and served as its program director until 1968. In 1973, Vogel started the Annenberg Cinematheque at the University of Pennsylvania and was eventually given a Chair for film studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, where he taught and lectured for two decades.Minor cracking to some of the titling, else Fine. Serigraph, 29.25 X 45 inches, linen backed and rolled. From the estate of New York Film Festival founder Amos Vogel. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      (BENGSTON, BILLY AL) (RUSCHA, EDWARD). Monte, James. Foreword by Maurice Tuchman. BILLY - WITH A FLOCKED SANDPAPER COVER DESIGNED BY ED RUSCHA. Los Angeles: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1968. First Edition 1/2500. Oblong 4to. Bolted Sandpaper Wrappers. Artist Monograph. Good +./No Jacket - As Issued.. np (64pp), 41 b&w and 10 color illustrations. With an exhibition history and bibliography. Designed by Edward Ruscha. In a custom protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Billy" is the innovatively designed and bound catalogue published in conjunction with the first major Museum retrospective of the noted Venice surfer-cum-motorcycle-racer-cum artist Billy Al Bengston. Its covers are two sheets of 50 and 100 grit Garnet sandpaper with Ed Ruscha's emblematic "Billy" flocked in pink on the front, and clasped through the spine by two machine bolts with hexagonal nuts that also secure a pink satin ribbon page marker. Each of the forty-six exhibited works by the Ferus Gallery-affiliated artist is reproduced, including more than a dozen of his innovative "dento" paintings on aluminum. Bengston was the real life "Moondoggie" to Kathy Kohner's "Gidget" in the popular Frederick Kohner novel of the same name, and the frontispiece portrait of the artist as a young man is by Don Bachardy. The design and installation for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art exhibition was by Frank Gehry! A most presentable example of this uncommon, ultra-cool Ruscha-inflected objet with the publisher's pink silk ribbon bookmark still present showing mild overall wear, creasing and some trivial chipping to the sandpaper covers, and soiling to the edges of the textblock with the often missing "67X The Authorized Version / Bengston Bio" attributed to Alan D. Shean printed as a single tissue sheet laid in, as issued. It has been priced accordingly.

Original paper dress (75% rayon, 25% nylon), size Small, folded as-issued and housed in the original manufacturer's plastic packaging, with stapled card header and advertising insert. Measures 30.5cm x 40cm (12" x 15.75"). Dress is Fine; plastic bag neatly opened along upper edge, with some light wear to header and general wear overall; Near Fine. Stunning example of this scarce Ginsberg item, a relic of the mid-late 1960's when "disposable" clothing was briefly all the rage. Paper dresses could be used repeatedly, and according to the manufacturer, "when you're finally tired of wearing it, why not...cut open all the seams and hang it on your wall as a poster." The present example, desgined by British fashion designer Harry Gordon, featured a screenprinted hand in a meditative pose on both sides, with Ginsberg's poem "Uptown N.Y." printed on the palms. An uncommon item that was never built to last. OCLC finds 5 examples (Brown, Yale, SUNY Buffalo, UCLA, UNC Chapel Hill), and we note 2 other examples at the Ransom Center. Morgan E45, p.325.

        Archive of photographs featuring Frank Zappa, circa 1968

      N.p.: N.p., 1968. Archive of five black and white, double weight photographs of Frank Zappa, in his iconic "Rental" T-shirt, at a press conference circa 1968, most apparently unpublished. By noted photographer Michael Montfort, each stamped "Copyright by Michael Montfort" and "Frank Zappa Montfort" on the verso, from the photographer's estate. Born in Freiburg, Germany, Michael Montfort began his career working as a photojournalist for German magazines such as "Stern," "Quick," and "Bild am Sonntag." In addition to shooting numerous rock and jazz performances, he covered Queen Elizabeth's 1965 visit to Germany, the aftermath of the Six Day War in Israel and Egypt, and the May 1968 protests in Paris. Montfort emigrated to Los Angeles in 1973 and began working as a freelancer. Four years later, on assignment for the German literary magazine "Rogners," Montfort was sent to photograph Charles Bukowski. Aided by the case of wine he smartly brought with him to their first meeting, Montfort connected with the publicity-shy and splenetic poet. Over the next two decades, as both Bukowski's drinking buddy and personal photographer, he shot literary thousands of images of Bukowski and collaborated with him on titles such as "Horsemeat," "Shakespeare Never Did This," and "The Wedding." In addition to Bukowski, Montfort shot notable photographs of luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Klaus Kinski, Brigitte Bardot, and a Jackson 5 era Michael Jackson. One photograph 11.25 x 8 inches (28.5 x 20.25 cm), the rest roughly 11.5 x 9 inches (29.25 x 23 cm). About Fine.

        Grands soirs et petits matins [Mayday] (Original photograph from the set of the 1977 film)

      N.p.: William Klein, 1968. Vintage single weight photograph, shot by director-photographer William Klein, during the making of his landmark documentary. With Klein's stamp on the back, noting his address in Paris. In making his cinema verité documentary about the occupation of the Sorbonne begun during the May, 1968 protests in Paris, Klein received unprecedented access to student leaders, activists, various committee meetings, and the general assembly. Filmed during late May and early June of 1968, the film is less a picture of the birth of a radical movement than it is a catalog of the everyday struggles, both practical and intellectual, of maintaining focus on, moving forward from, and ultimate dissipation of that foundational revolutionary spirit. 7 x 9.75 inches (18 x 25 cm). In an archival mat. Near Fine.

        Collection of Color Transparency Slides of Jimi Hendrix]

      [New York] 1968 - Eight Kodak color transparency slides. 2" square with image area 1 3/8" x 15/16" approx. Date-stamped "MAR 68" to border of verso. No- tated in ink outside of image area with names, numbers. Clean, well preserved. Near fine. High-resolution jpgs of all images provided. A collection of exceptional but presumably unpublished images of Jimi Hendrix performing at New York City's Hunter College on March 2, 1968. Seven capture the guitar hero on stage: with his signature Stratocaster, kneeling before a giant stack of amplifiers, playing with his teeth, etc. The eighth is a candid portrait, likely snapped backstage. Though we've been unable to determine the photographer, the photos are of clear professional caliber and bear a certain re- semblance to the work of legendary rock-and-roll photographer El- liott Landy. An iconic selection of original vintage slides capturing the signature style of a rock legend.

        Three Sketchbooks of Original Art Documenting Construction Projects in Pennsylvania and Maryland

      Maryland and Pennsylvania, 1968. Spiral bound wraps. Very good. Three 8" x 11" standard-size spiral notebooks containing approximately 425 pages, almost all filled with detailed pencil sketches of construction sites. Photographs and clippings from magazines and newspapers are both laid in and attached to about ten pages. Among the many projects documented in the sketchbooks are work at Gifforf Pinchot State Park, the expressway that would become Interstate 83, the filtering basins for the P. H. Gatfelter Co., the Quarryville Sr. High School, U.S. 30 and 230, Borg-Warner Corporation headquarters, etc. The vehicles and equipment in Karsten's drawings are usually annotated with company, manufacturer, numbering, and/or license information. The sketches and photographs are all in nice shape. The clippings have tape stains. Karsten was a talented artist from York, Pennsylvania whose works have appeared on national magazine covers, juried shows, and in public and private collections. He studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art and was an art professor at Louisiana Tech University from 1968 to 1984 when he relocated to Red Lion, Pennsylvania where he worked as a fine artist and illustrator. His life-long fascination with trucks, trains, and horse racing is evident in much of his work. Karsten never married, and in later years, he was devoted to caring for his elderly mother. Karsten became despondent when his mother died in 1996 and shortly thereafter committed suicide upon being diagnosed with macular degeneration.

About Fine (slight fading to topstain); About Fine jacket (slight toning and wrinkling to rear panel's upper edge, trivial spots lower edge). Stefanik A11.1.a and A16.1.a. In the mid-1950s, Berryman began an intensive written analysis of his dreams that "led him toward a new sort of poem, a short, jazzy lyric spoken by a persona, or sometimes by a number of voices. The new poems, which would eventually become The Dream Songs, explored deep recesses of the unconscious, Oedipal tendencies, intense feelings of loss, . . . By the early 1960s he had a suitcase of these new poems, written primarily in eight-line stanzas and spoken by a character named Henry, whom Berryman later described as a white middle-aged man who has suffered an 'irreversible loss.' . . . Berryman put a substantial group of the poems together and published them in 1964 as 77 Dream Songs. . . . Four years later, he published a larger collection of Dream Songs titled His Toy, His Dream, His Rest, bringing the total number published to 385. . . . The themes of The Dream Songs are many, including: love, death, fame, history, politics, and the individual in relation to society. The sequence includes a number of memorable elegies for fellow poets, and remarkable individual poems brooding over the death of a father. However, it is the voice and character of Henry, and the unique style of the poems, driven by Henry's humour, depression, and strange associations, which continue to fascinate readers."

Agréable exemplaire. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des 100 exemplaires hors commerce numérotés sur B.F.K. de Rives, seuls grands papiers avec 662 autres B.F.K. de Rives. Précieux envoi autographe daté de Février 1968 et signé de Samuel Beckett à son ami le peintre Geer (Van Velde) et à sa femme Lise. Petites piqûres sur le premier plat marginalement et légèrement insolé.  « Que dire de ces plans qui glissent, ces contours qui vibrent, ces corps comme taillés dans la brume, ces équilibres qu'un rien doit rompre, qui se rompent, et se reforment à mesure qu'on regarde ? Comment parler de ces couleurs qui respirent, qui halètent ? de cette stase grouillante ? de ce monde sans poids, sans force, sans ombre ? Ici tout bouge, nage, fuit, revient, se défait, se refait. Tout cesse, sans cesse. On dirait l'insurrection des molécules, l'intérieur d'une pierre un millième de seconde avant qu'elle ne se désagrège. C'est ça la littérature. » (La Peinture des van Velde ou Le monde et le pantalon, in Cahiers d'Art n°11 - 12, Paris 1945)   Beckett ne parle pas ici, malgré les apparences, de son œuvre littéraire mais de la peinture de Geer Van Velde, ajoutant quelques lignes plus loin : « [Bram] Van Velde peint l'étendue. G[eer] Van Velde peint la succession. » Cet éloge, publié à l'occasion de la double exposition des Van Velde, Geer chez Maeght et Bram à la galerie Mai, est le premier texte d'importance sur ces peintres alors à peu près inconnus du public : « On ne fait que commencer à déconner sur les frères Van Velde. J'ouvre la série. C'est un honneur. » Il est aussi le premier texte critique écrit directement en français par un jeune écrivain irlandais qui n'a encore jamais publié en France. Ainsi, le premier et plus important écrit sur l'art de Beckett, composé à l'aube de sa carrière littéraire, instaure, dès l'origine, une relation fondamentale entre son œuvre en gestation et la peinture de ses amis : « Aussi a - t - on souvent lu ce texte en creux, ou en miroir, comme une des rares désignations de la poétique (à venir) de Beckett par lui - même, une sorte de programme anamorphique d'écriture » (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique par Pierre Vilar) Véritable déclaration d'intention du dramaturge, ce texte fondamental - dont Beckett confesse dès l'introduction la valeur introspective : « avec les mots on ne fait que se raconter » - inaugure la période créatrice la plus fructueuse de l'écrivain. En effet, à l'instar d'Apollinaire et de Cendrars, Beckett puise dans les problématiques artistiques de ses contemporains le ferment de son écriture à venir par « la mise en cause la plus profonde des présupposés narratifs, figuratifs ou poétiques. » (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur) L'influence majeure de la peinture moderne sur la structure - ou déstructuration - narrative du théâtre et des romans de Beckett sera révélée et analysée par de nombreux penseurs, dont Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva ou Maurice Blanchot. C'est justement à partir de la peinture des Van Velde, de Geer, puis de Bram, que Beckett formalise cette volonté de traduire la question picturale en dramaturgie. Ainsi refuse - t - il les décors de Nicolas de Staël pour En attendant Godot car : « Il faut que le décor sorte du texte, sans y ajouter. Quant à la commodité visuelle du spectateur, je la mets là où tu penses. Crois - tu vraiment qu'on puisse écouter devant un décor de Bram, ou voir autre chose que lui ? » (Lettre à Georges Duthuit, 1952). Lorsqu'il rencontre Geer en 1937, « Beckett traverse une crise existentielle majeure, il vient de remodeler son premier roman Murphy, refusé par un grand nombre d'éditeurs, il sombre dans l'alcoolisme, quitte l'Irlande et s'installe définitivement à Paris » (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). Il revient d'un long voyage artistique en Allemagne où il s'est imprégné d'œuvres classiques et d'art contemporain - c'est lors de ce voyage qu'il découvre les Deux hommes contemplant la lune de Caspar David Friedrich, à l'origine de En attendant Godot. L'art est alors au cœur de sa réflexion créatrice et l'amitié qui va le lier à Geer puis plus tard à Bram et à leur sœur Jacoba (avec laquelle il entretint peut - être une relation plus qu'amicale) va profondément influencer sa vie et son écriture. Son premier écrit sur l'art est une courte notice sur Geer Van Velde dont il impose les œuvres à sa nouvelle amante Peggy Guggenheim à l'occasion de la création de sa galerie londonienne. Malgré l'échec relatif de l'exposition (qui suit celle de Kandinsky), il obtient de Peggy une bourse d'un an pour son ami. James Knowlson avance même que « si Beckett a longtemps gardé des liens étroits avec Peggy, c'est d'abord et avant tout parce qu'elle était susceptible de donner un sérieux coup de pouce à ses amis artistes, à commencer par Geer Van Velde. » (in Beckett p. 474) Enigmatique, la petite note que Beckett rédige alors à la demande de Peggy contient déjà en germe la pensée du dramaturge : « Believes painting should mind it on business, i.e. colours. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely.  » (« Pense que la peinture devrait se mêler de ses propres affaires, c'est - à - dire la couleur, c'est - à - dire pas plus de Picasso que de Fabritus ou Vermeer. Et inversement. »)   Plus lents à croître, son amitié pour Bram et son intérêt pour sa peinture modifient peu à peu le regard de Beckett sur la peinture de Geer et lorsque, dix ans après sa première rencontre avec les frères, il écrit Le Monde et le Pantalon, Beckett met à jour une dualité symbolisée par ce titre tiré d'une anecdote placée en exergue de l'article. Le monde, c'est l'œuvre « imparfaite » de Dieu créé en six jours à laquelle le tailleur oppose la perfection de son pantalon achevé en six mois. La relation entre cette anecdote et les frères Van Velde est peut - être à chercher dans le second essai que Beckett leur consacre en 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : « L'un d'eux dira : Je ne peux voir l'objet, pour le représenter, parce qu'il est ce qu'il est. L'autre : je ne peux voir l'objet, pour le représenter, parce que je suis ce que je suis. Il y a toujours ces deux sortes d'empêchement, l'empêchement - objet et l'empêchement - œil. [...] Geer Van Velde est un artiste de la première sorte [...], Bram Van Velde de la seconde. ». Résistance de l'objet ou impuissance de l'artiste, cette fable, « véritable noyau narratif premier en forme de kôan zen » (P. Vilar), se retrouvera ensuite dispersée dans l'ensemble de l'œuvre de Beckett et occupera plus particulièrement une place centrale dans Fin de Partie, dont Roger Blin, note par ailleurs la similitude avec l'œuvre de Geer : « Il était ami à cette époque des frères Geer et Bram van Velde, hollandais et peintres tous deux. Geer était un peintre dans la lignée de Mondrian. J'ai le sentiment que Beckett voyait Fin de partie comme un tableau de Mondrian, avec des cloisons très nettes, des séparations géométriques, de la géométrie musicale. » (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    L'affinité grandissante de Beckett avec l'œuvre de Bram Van Velde et l'énergie qu'il dépense pour défendre son travail, notamment auprès de la galerie Maeght ou de son ami, l'historien d'art Georges Duthuit, se feront sans doute aux dépens de ses relations avec Geer. Cependant, malgré quelques malentendus, leur amitié ne sera jamais rompue, ni le dialogue silencieux mais agité que l'écrivain entretient avec l'œuvre du petit frère van Velde dont il possédait deux grandes toiles : « Le grand tableau de Geer me fait enfin des signes. Dommage qu'il ait si mal tourné. Mais ce n'est peut - être pas vrai. » (lettre à Georges Duthuit, mars 1950) « Geer dégage un grand courage. Des idées un peu tranchantes, mais peut - être seulement en apparence. Je l'ai toujours beaucoup estimé. Mais pas assez je crois. » (lettre à Mania Péron, août 1951) La mort de Geer Van Velde en 1977 affecte profondément Beckett et coïncide avec une période d'intense nostalgie durant laquelle l'écrivain décide de se livrer à un « grand ménage » dans sa demeure pour vivre entre des « murs gris comme le propriétaire ». Confiant ses états d'âme à son amie, la décoratrice de théâtre Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett témoigne de l'indéfectible affection qu'il porte au peintre depuis  quarante ans : « plus de toiles sous les yeux, y compris celle du grand Geer Van Velde derrière le piano ». Précieux témoignage de l'amitié de ces compagnons de route qui, depuis le premier roman de Beckett pour lequel ils vérifiaient ensemble la vraisemblance de la partie d'échecs opposant Murphy à M. Endon, ont affronté ensemble les grands enjeux de la modernité : « C'est qu'au fond, la peinture ne les intéresse pas. Ce qui les intéresse, c'est la condition humaine. Nous reviendrons là - dessus. » (Beckett à propos des frères Van Velde, in Le Monde et le Pantalon)
