LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA: "LA LUNA, 1989" DEBUT ONE-MAN SHOW SOUVENIR POSTER - Rare Pristine Copy of The Limited-Edition Poster: Signed by Luis Gonzalez Palma - ONLY SIGNED COPY ONLINE
Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 1989 - 1st Printing. Signed. 1 pages. Published in 1989. Rare Luis Gonzalez Palma collectible item. A pristine copy of the Souvenir Poster of the photographer's very first one-man show in the United States, signed by Luis Gonzalez Palma. Published in a small and limited print run of 500 copies only. Poster size is 18 X 24 inches. It is eminently suitable for framing. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Chicago, Illinois to the highest standards. Published on the occasion of the artist/photographer's inaugural exhibition in the United States held at The Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago in 1989. Presents Luis Gonzalez Palma's "La Luna, 1989". One of his most iconic images and earliest masterpieces. Shows a woman with a carved crescent-moon tied around her neck virtually covering her face. The poetic and erotic associations of the Moon with Woman are universal. As beautiful as the image is, Gonzalez Palma is also alluding to its more oppressive side in the larger context of Latin-American post-colonial, "macho" culture and society, where women, while outnumbering men, continue to be treated as though they were a minority, and remain subject to the obsolete standards of morality that a male-dominated, colonialist society seeks to perpetuate. The Guatemalan artist/photographer is now regarded as one of the most brilliant Latin-American artist/photographers of our time, whose work is widely represented and well-known throughout the world. The late Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez used another image, "La Rosa", for the cover of his great novel, "Of Love And Other Demons". "Gonzalez Palma's images unfold with increasing significance, resulting in an underlying sense of tension and foreboding that is only slightly eased by their sheer loveliness" (A. D. Miller). An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. This copy of the Souvenir Poster is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen in front by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It is signed directly on the poster itself, not on a tipped-in page. This Souvenir Poster is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy available online, comes directly from the artist/photographer, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: It will be packed carefully for both domestic (and where feasible, international) transit. A rare signed poster thus. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible poster. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
