J. Florian-Steiner (?)
J. Florian-Steinerwas identified as a Hungarian artist by the auction gallery from which the accompanying serigraphs were purchased, but it is evident that he spent some time in Brazil, the setting for these imginative pieces. He seems to have vanished without a trace. If you come across any biographical information or other examples of his work, I'll appreciate hearing from you.
Marialice do Rio
Serigraph, 1970; variant of original work created in 1960. Edition size unknown. Image size 13¾” x 19½”; sheet size 19-3/8” x 26¾”. Signed, dated, and titled in pencil by the artist in the lower margin. Tape remnants on reverse from former mounting. Very good.
Doña Maria do Mato Grosso
Serigraph, 1970; edition size unknown. Image size 15¾” x 19-5/8”; sheet size 16¾” x 20-7/8”. Titled, dated, and signed in pencil by the artist in the lower margin. A very good impression with narrow margins, tipped to black 100% cotton fiber mount. Small burn hole in lower right-hand corner fortuitously located in a black printed area of the image is invisible against the black mount.
