Sotheby's Print Department is very pleased to introduce our upcoming auction which will include American and Modern European prints from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Flower and Masterworks by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec from the S. Joel Schur Collection.
Amongst the Flower Collection are Edward Hopper's The Locomotive, Stuart Davis' 1931 lithograph Two Figures and El and a nearly comprehensive offering of Martin Lewis' etchings. The Toulouse-Lautrec selection from Joel Schur includes some of the artist's best known lithographic posters depicting 1890s café society in Paris, most notably the very rare three-sheet Moulin Rouge, La Goulue. We are additionally thrilled to present eight etchings by the exceptional draftsmen Lucian Freud, including Large Head; Richard Diebenkorn's Large Bright Blue, an etching and aquatint from 1980; Roy Lichtenstein's Nude with Blue Hair from his Nudes series of 1994; and Andy Warhol's iconic Mao set comprising 10 screenprints from 1972.

Please note the printed catalogue does not mention that the work is signed in pencil by both Munch and Felsing. Additionally, the correct spelling of the museum at which the print was exhibited is Harn.
