Prints & Multiples
One of the most popular artists of the last century, Keith Haring proved that art needn’t be opaque, academic or self-consciously esoteric to be intelligent, witty and gorgeous. A prime example is his Andy Mouse, a set of four screenprints that introduced the world to a new Haring character: a cheeky cartoon hybrid of Andy Warhol and Mickey Mouse, dallying with the device of the dollar sign. This complete portfolio is No. 1 in the edition of 30, and each of the screenprints is signed by Haring and Warhol.
Tiffany Studios began producing Cypriote glass, inspired by ancient Cyprian glass artifacts excavated by Luigi Palma di Cesnola in the 1860s, as early as 1896, and this exceptional vase demonstrates the firm’s virtuosic command of the medium. This large spherical example, produced in 1899 immediately before Tiffany Studios’ Grand Prix-winning presentation at the 1900 Paris Exposition, features the bubbled and pockmarked texture characteristic of Tiffany Studios’ Cypriote line and stands as a masterwork of the form.
