27 x 23 in
The camel from the cigarette pack is the best-known example of Larry Rivers' imagery, other than the Dutch Master. Larry Rivers was one of the earliest, if not the earliest, artist to qualify as making "Pop Art." His "Washington Crossing the Delaware" was painted way back in 1953, when the Abstract Expressionists were slashing away! Google him for tons of information on this extremely important New York artist. This litho was an edition of only 20; this is 5/20, and is signed.
