Claes Oldenburg: the soft screw. Essay by Melinda Wortz, with added comments by the artist

Los Angeles: Gemini G.E.L., 1976. A combined prospectus and catalogue of a suite of prints in the form of a paper scroll 8 inches tall by 8 feet long. 3 photographs and 8 reproductions of lithographs (the originals are 67-1/2 x 40-1/2 inches). Made of two lengths of paper joined together and housed in a small tube with plastic caps and bearing an address label and postage. Oldenburg's native wit and pure drawing skill transcend the limitations of Pop Art (in this writer's opinion). "Because of the pejorative verbal implications of the word ‘screw,' Oldenburg has found it nearly impossible for his large-scale, public proposals regarding the Screw to be seriously considered." Very fine. This copy lacks one plastic cap and a removable title band. "Oldenbergh [sic] "Soft Screw" written on tube in black marker, with "4/76" in pencil. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order. Item #24901
