        Südländische Hafenszene bei Nacht mit einem zwischen zwei Häusern aufgedockten Fischerboot; über den Mast des Bootes ist das Fischernetz zum Trocknen aufgehängt.

      - Öl auf Leinwand, doubliert, rechts unten signiert „Curt Lahs". 50:40 cm. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Großes Ey wir loben dich. Johanna Ey und ihr Künstlerkreis. Mit einem Text von Peter Barth aus dem Jahre 1984. Düsseldorf, Galerie Remmert und Barth., 2007, Nr. 104 mit Farbabbildung. Entstanden ist das attraktive Gemälde entweder während Lahs’ Aufenthalt in Kolumbien zwischen 1928 und 1930, oder nach seiner Flucht aus Deutschland nach Südfrankreich bzw. Jugoslawien und Albanien. 1919 erhielt Lahs seine erste Einzelausstellung in der Galerie Flechtheim, Düsseldorf. 1921 folgte eine Ausstellung bei Frau Ey und er wurde Mitglied im Künstlerbund „Das Junge Rheinland" (1919-1929), später auch der „Rheingruppe" (1923 – ca. 1933 Düsseldorf). 1928 siedelte er nach Kolumbien über und wurde Direktor der Academia de Pintura in Medellin. Ab 1930 lehrte er an der Staatl. Kunstschule Berlin und wurde 1933 als „entartet" entlassen. Nach einer Schutzhaft gelang ihm die Flucht nach Südfrankreich, später nach Jugoslawien und Albanien. Fast das gesamt Frühwerk ist im Kriege verbrannt. Ab 1948 erhielt er eine Professur an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Berlin und gehörte in dieser Zeit zum „Freundeskreis der Galerie Gerd Rosen" in Berlin.

In 1932, MacArthur gave 21-year-old recent Eureka College grad Ronald ?Dutch? Reagan a sports announcer?s job at WOC. In 1937, sportscaster Reagan went to the Chicago Cubs spring training camp in southern California to do play-by-play for WHO Des Moines. Impressed by his confidence and good looks, an agent arranged a screen test for the 26-year-old sports announcer at Warner Bros. Reagan signed a seven-year contract and moved to California. But he never forgot Pete and Hup MacArthur whom he affectionately called ?Ma? and ?Pa? (?Maw & Paw,? ?Mom & Pop?). He sent Christmas cards and letters to them on a regular basis from 1938 until 1948 when Pete died, continuing to correspond with Hup until she died in 1995 at 101. "

        Wide Open [prototype]

      Arlington, Virginia:: An Osborn Book,, 1984.. Artist Proof [prototype]. 34.5" x 7.5" x 26"; 74 shaped leaves. Printed by offset lithography on archival Mohawk Superfine paper with lightfast inks at the Writer's Center Bethesda, Maryland. Bound between shaped covers of plexi with a wooden spine. Affixed to a pedestal, a wooden base 13.5 x 8 x 5.5". A screw mechanism allows the book to be tilted diagonally for reading and turning the pages (i.e. the wooden spine of the book swings down to rest on the pedestal so that the spine rests at an angle). Renee Riese Hubert & Judd D. Hubert, The Cutting Edge of Reading: Artists' Books: "Kevin Osborn disturbs the act of reading as much as possible.... Wide Open (1984) makes the very handling of the book almost impossible. The volume, large in size, requires the reader either to lock it up between two plexiglas covers reposing on a wooden pedestal doubling as spine or to leave it wide open, as the title indicates. Each of its alternately rectangular and triangular pages has its own dimensions and never coincides with another. Because of this manifest 'difference,' the reader cannot progress in an accustomed way: his or her field of vision constantly requires refocusing. Other devices jot us out of our habits: patterned lithographed papers with alternating designs seem somewhat reminiscent of wallpaper. The turning of the pages disrupts any routine that we might still rely on, and the thick double leaves, leaning on each other, insist on bending over. Open or closed, the book resembles a bird attempting to fly away. The sculptural volume constantly deprives us of the intimacy of reading. Normally, we find ourselves alone with books and physically close to them, but in Wide Open our approach, our seeking to turn the pages, our asking them to lie flat, only disturb the equilibrium of the flight. "Colored patterns into which large stripes and Arches intrude become the bed on which words eventually come to life. Scattered black seedlings play the role of forerunners of words which could appear in any text....They become more crowded and busy as the patterns intensify; they may eventually repeat, but they never link up spatially, semiotically, or syntactically. Since words do not stand out, the reader literally has to pin them down. The artist describes Wide Open as 'A book of passage through dense landscapes of overlay pattern and structure.' Instead of transfixing a text on the page, Osborn proposes a flight over a spatial expanse where we can spot at best a hidden word from afar.

        [Photo Album]: Original Photographs of a Young African-American Boy who was a 1984 Olympic Torchbearer

      (Los Angeles. 1984). Quarto. Pictorial boards illustrating Olympic scenes. Boards slightly soiled, about fine. The album contains 92 color snapshots (3" x 5") of a young African-American torchbearer and the community excitement surrounding his participation in the festivities leading up to the 23rd Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles in 1984. The album shows him carrying the torch, with various relatives brandishing the unlit torch, posing for photos, signing autographs, and cutting into a congratulatory cake for "Elliott" thanking the Morley Construction Company, who appears to have been his sponsor, and with many street scenes. The photos are housed in an official Olympic album. The 1984 torch relay was the first to invite nominations from the public, a system replicated in future years. It was also the first to charge torchbearers for their participation, with the fee working out to about $3,000 per kilometer. Anybody who could raise the entry fee would be able to sponsor one kilometer and bear a torch or designate a person to do so. The scheme, called the "Youth Legacy Kilometer" raised nearly $11 million, all of which was given to charities. The Hellenic Olympic Committee (HOC), unhappy with what they considered to be the commercialization of the torch relay, threatened to stop the event from happening, but an agreement was negotiated just days before the planned ceremony. On the morning of May 8, the torch relay left on its 84-day journey from Olympia, Greece to Los Angeles, California. The relay passed through 33 states and Washington, DC, reaching 41 of the largest American cities and incorporated 3,636 runners. The location of the album photos is not definitely known by us, but it appears to be on the outskirts of Los Angeles. .

A collection of poems/thoughts by abstract painter Sam Francis, founder of Lapis Press. While the trade version of Aphorisms was published in an edition of 600 copies, we have only been able to locate one other copy of it in this larger format issued without a dustwrapper, in the archives of the Sam Francis Foundation. The foundation could not definitively date this variant; its sparse production suggest it is possibly a proof copy. Rare. OCLC locates no copies of this variant (five of the trade edition). .
