Np: The Artist, 1980. 8 1/2 x 11", original xerox and hand-painting on paper. Signed by the artist twice at lower margin, once in plate and once in holograph.
Howland was an important member of the Downtown scene in the late 1970's and 1980's, and was involved with COLAB and ABC No Rio. This work, which critiques the Corporate Oil ties behind armed conflict, is related thematically to her other works attacking big oil, including Oil Rig Fountain, which had been installed in the men's room as part of the Times Square Show. The work is xeroxed in b/w, with hand-coloring, and was perhaps made as a street poster.
Some light toning, and short nicks to margins; pinholes to tips; very good. Item #25186
