“September’s Song” Original Lithographic hand-pulled print. In this auction are two lithographic prints from 1980 that launched Glenda’s international prominence as a leading contemporary artist. These lithographs were created under contract with Bruce McGaw Graphics in New York in an artisan print studio where each lithographic plate is created by the artist and hand pulled through press. These are true collectables and only 275 of each one was created. Only a very few pieces in the artist collection remain unpurchased.
“September’s Song” is a quintessential expression of memories and delight in the past summers of our life. It is the spirit of love, peace, and remembrance. This print for auction is number 1 of 275 issued, and of course signed by the artist. It is printed on the finest acid free lithographic paper. This print is unframed and will be shipped flat. The image size is: 29″ x 17.″
This lithograph is the ONLY ONE remaining unsold from the edition and it is number ONE of the edition. It was featured in Art in America, and Art News in 1980. The appraised value of this lithograph is $5,000. That is based on reported sales records of prints resold by galleries as a rare collectible. The original release retail price was $300. The edition quickly sold at that price, and only this one remains because of the artist’s collection.
Our minimum bid for this piece is $500, only a small increase over the original retail price. This minimum was set at 10% of the appraised and insurable value of the print based on the sale of comparable pieces being resold through galleries. It’s estimated and real value will, of course, increase dramatically in the future as the overall value of all the artist’s work appreciates.
The cost for shipping can only be determined after we know the final packaged weight and destination. All auction purchases may be picked up in person or special arrangements made by the purchaser. Otherwise, all of our shipments will go through FedEx, and will be insured for an amount at the buyers request but no less than the purchase price.
