A most handsome copy of this deluxe artist's book that was limited to two hundred and fifty copies only SIGNED AND NUMBERED #153/250 by Mike Kelley in black ink on the colophon, as issued with an additional SIGNED PRESENTATION "To ..., all my best, Mike Kelley 1992" in black ink on the half title page in the publisher's unprinted cardboard shipping carton.

        Edwardian Golf

      Italy: circa 1990. Oil on copper. 8 x 15 1/2 inches. 22k gold leaf frame with brown crackle panel. 10 1/2 x 18 inches. Marco Ceri lives in Northern Italy where he paints in oil on copper pictures in a very specific genre all his own. They are paintings of English people engaged at polo, golf or tennis during the Edwardian era. A great deal of research provided a high degree of accuracy to every aspect of these scenes including, of course, the attire and sports equipment, but even the postures and demeanors of the participants. The accuracy of the elements however does not intrude on the overall delight expressed in these tableaux. The artist keeps a low profile, enjoying his virtual anonymity. He considers himself a craftsman, who by limiting his sphere of activity, brings that craft closer and closer to perfection.
