EXTREMELY RARE LARGE EUROPEAN REX ART PRINT : ARMAGEDDON (1987)




A RARE LARGE PRINT OF A POLITICAL POSTER BY REX : ARMAGEDDON (1987)


This original large print (11 3/4 by 15 1/2 inches) is the only known political illustration by the artist REX and was created in 1987 in San Francisco as a prediction of America's future in the 21st Century if poverty, homelessness, political and economic corruption were not addressed in the late 20th Century. Which they were not , as America in 2019 clearly demonstrates. Note the pocket watch at the bottom of the illustration points to the "eleventh hour" in America's race towards economic and social collapse if those issues continued to be ignored by the government. This rare one-of-a-kind large print was struck for five REX European exhibitions: (1) CNCPT GALLERY Amsterdam in 2014 (2) ANCO HOTEL in Amsterdam in 2015 (3) BALLERY GALLERY Berlin in 2016 (4) REX VERBOTEN Colonge in 2017 and (5) REX WORLD Antwerp in February 2018. The original drawing was exhibited only once at the LESLIE-LOHMAN GALLERY in New York in 1994. This is the largest print of this obscure seldom-seen REX image ever offered for sale to the public. It was only reproduced in the hardcover volume REX VERBOTEN published by Bruno Gmunder in Berlin in 2012. Print offered here is in mint uncirculated condition with no stains, surface marks or discolorations
