A UNIQUE TRIAL PROOF OF THIS PORTRAIT OF SALMAN RUSHDIE, SIGNED AND JUSTIFIED "TRIAL PROOF" BY THE ARTIST. There was also an unsigned edition with a darker background (20 impressions) for the artist's book "Merely Connect".
During his sojourn at Harvard's Carpenter Center (1993-1994) Tom Phillips created five portraits (four lithographs and an etching with aquatint) of Salman Rushdie. Sylvan Cole Gallery has acquired a complete set--surely the only complete set, as even Phillips himself doesn't have them all--of the five, all of which are exceptional proofs.
On extremely fine Japon appliqué.
In perfect condition.
