Charley Harper – Tall Tail


This color serigraph, titled Tall Tail, is by Charley Harper (1922- ), a well listed American artist known for his abstract wildlife and scenic artwork in a modern style.

The piece was printed in 1974, edition 298/2000, and is signed and numbered in pencil. It is double matted, with a light brown outer mat and a yellow inner mat, and framed under glass in bamboo style brown wooden frame. This image is 10 inches by 18 inches; the sheet measures 13 inches by 21 inches; the total measurements are 18 inches by 26 inches. The serigraph is in excellent condition; the mats have slight, even fading.

Despite the fact that this lithograph was printed in a large edition of 2000, few have survived. This is an engaging, distinctive piece that would complement several decors; we suggest incorporating it into an Eames-style atomic ranch aesthetic as it has a distinct mid-century modern appearance.
