        Jerusalem Faces.

      Jerusalem Jerusalem Foundation 1973 - Large folio, (box measures 74.5 x 57 cm), number 24 of 150 sets, from an edition limited to 180. Ssuite of 6 lithographed portraits by Kokoschka on Japon, each numbered and signed in pencil by the artist, each with tissue guard and loose as issued in card folder, together with contents/limitation leaf in original cloth drop-back box, title etc. in blue on upper cover, with the publisher's original cardboard box. Folio in fine condition, some marginal tears to box. Kokoschka, the celebrated Austrian painter (1886-1980) was a leading pioneer of the expressionism movement and undertook this series of portraits at the age of 87. Known as a "court portraitist" in Germany, he had already produced a long line of political art in a career which also encompassed poetry and plays. He took an active interest in international politics and this was one of many of his humanitarian efforts. Concerned by the lingering conflict between Israel and the Middle East, Kokoschka visited Jerusalem in 1973 and undertook the project to benefit the Jerusalem Foundation by portraying the protagonists of Israeli politics featuring a Muslim (Sheik Mustafa Khalil El-Ansari, Chief Warden of the Mosque of Omar), the Greek Orthodox Patriarch (His Beatitude Benedictos I, Greek-Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem) and four prominent Jewish figures (Golda Meir, the Prime Minister of Israel at the time; Dr. Shimon Agranat, President of the Israel Supreme-Court; Moyshe Dayan, Minister of Defence; and Teddy Kollek, Mayor of Jerusalem).

        Notes on actor Rip Torn (Original manuscript essay, with corrections)

      N.p., N.p. 1973 - Seven-page manuscript, executed in holograph pencil with numerous corrections. An early rough draft of an essay by Southern regarding his first encounter with actor Rip Torn, which, oddly, is more an encounter with the concept of Rip Torn than Rip Torn himself (though Torn would ultimately become one of Southern's closest friends and confidants). The piece was ultimately published as "One of the Real.ah.Originals" in the April 1973 issue of Saturday Review of the Arts.With reference to his involvement in "The Cincinnati Kid" during Sam Peckinpah's brief tenure with same, Southern describes a meeting with the film's producer, the producer still reeling from Peckinpah's acrimonious departure (Norman Jewison would ultimately take the directorial reigns). The bulk of the essay details how Southern wrote a new scene in the midst of the change, introducing what would become Torn's character, Slade, a "gentleman" card shark. Full provenance available on request.Lined notebook paper, rectos only, 8.5 x 11 inches. Near Fine.

      1973 - Original lithograph in black and orange. Image size: 11.75" x 18.5" (with margins 16" x 23.25"). Glazed and framed. Hand Inscribed, titled, signed, and dated by Miller below image: "For Sydney Omarr -- 'D'apres Schatz -- Henry Miller 1973." Scene of the inside of an apartment with a naked man smoking on a bed, while a naked woman washes at a sink, and with a horse in the foreground. Unexamined out of the frame, but all indications are that the lithograph is in fine condition. Old label, contemporary with the frame, indicating the lithograph was framed in Santa Monica, California. Omarr was a close friend of Miller's and the "astrologer to the stars." He published a daily horoscope that appeared in more than 200 newspapers and his books of horoscopes sold over 50 million copies. He started out during the Second World War at the age of 17 when his predictions of horse races, boxing matches, and other sporting events were broadcast on Armed Forces Radio. Like Miller, Omarr surrounded himself with beautiful women and was the personal adviser to Jayne Mansfield, Rita Hayworth, Kim Novak, and Mae West, among others. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
