Original Poster for a major exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in 1973. “The show introduced the British public to Photo-Realism and served to draw attention to Dr. Peter and Irene Ludwig’s rapidly expanding art collection. The show also included new works from Robert Cottingham and Howard Kanovitz. The Serpentine Gallery’s exhibition was staged shortly after Documenta V the previous year, in which Photo-Realism had had a significant presence.

This was the first exhibition the Serpentine Gallery showed that was not devoted exclusively to the work of young British artists. The exhibition also marked a change in the gallery’s programme, from being open only during the summer months to becoming a year-round exhibition space. This was, therefore, a moment of expansion for the Serpentine Gallery, both in terms of the number and remit of its exhibitions.”

Condition: some light creasing and spotting to edges. blu-tack remnants to verso, otherwise very good.
