Four-color lithograph with hand-lithographed postcard collé

Artist William Wegman is world famous for the anthropomorphic photographs, videos and films of his Weimeraner dogs, Man Ray, Fay Ray, Battina, Crooky, Chundo, and Chip. However, Wegman began his career as a painter and conceptual artist, facets of his work that are often overwhelmed by the popularity of the canine portraiture.

When in residence at Graphicstudio, Wegman visited an antiquarian bookseller in Tampa and purchased a number of vintage postcards of the area. Placing the postcards on good rag paper, and using their subject matter as a starting point, Wegman painted in watercolor around the postcards transforming them into fantasy landscapes. Graphicstudio faithfully reproduced the vintage post cards, and they have been collaged onto the lithographic renderings of the watercolors in the prints Shore Liner and Souvenir.
