DISPLAY BOARDS FOR INSTRUCTION I AND II. 1971. SIGNED AND NUMBERED.

£6,000.00

Heidelberg: Edition Tangente, 1971
Two photographs on thick card – both 83 x 105 x 0.6cm. One of the sheets has a zinc printing plate glued on and overlaid with some hand applied sulphur. The texts on the photographs are handwritten and the first board is signed by Beuys and numbered from an edition of only 150 (202 were intended but only 150 were completed). The images are of a concrete bomb shelter in Ostende where Beuys planned an action in 1963 that was never completed. There is a slight paper scuff in the dark area of the first print (with the zinc plate) which has been carefully restored with black ink (see circled area in the close up photograph) else VG. Framed in wood and glass. Very scarce early work.
