"I Love You de Kooning" Broadside-Artwork

Bolinas, CA (?): Yanagi, Circa 1978. Limited First Edition. Single Sheet. A broadside (22" x 21") with the title work, a paneled art & text collaboration between Joe Brainard & Bill Berkson. Brainard (1942-1994) & Berkson (1939-2016) were both very important figures in the New York School ferment of 1960s NYC & beyond. A poetic, whimsical tribute to Willem de Kooning, the modern art titan- the artwork here refers to de Kooning's iconic style. One of 300 hand-numbered copies, this is copy No. 91/300, published by the rare & mysterious Yanagi as part of its Yanagi IV Broadside Series as noted on colophon/limitation panel. Our research indicates this was produced during the late 1970s, based on original manuscript-artwork dating to the late 1960s. A most desirable Brainard-Berkson collaborative collectible. In very fine condition with two horizontal & three vertical creases across surface where originally folded into twelve panels with printing on one side only; a few short, faint creases & waves extending therefrom; miniscule bump-crease at upper left corner; otherwise nearly immaculate. Currently mounted on stiff board, in protective shrinkwrap. Will be shipped carefully re-folded as originally issued. Very Fine. [Item #2844]
