Palma, Luis Gonzalez. LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA: "HIJA DE LA VIDA" ("DAUGHTER OF LIFE") COMMEMORATIVE ORIGINAL COLOR PRINT. Buenos Aires, Argentina: Luis Gonzalez Palma Studio, 2017. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. As New.

Rare Luis Gonzalez Palma collectible item. A pristine copy of "Hija de la Vida" ("Daughter of Life") commemorative original color print, with the Certificate of Authenticity numbered and signed by Luis Gonzalez Palma. Limited Edition of 100 numbered and authenticated/signed copies. Actual print size is 11 X 11 inches. The artist/photographer will issue NO other print size, and will NOT reissue the print once all of the editioned copies are sold. Meticulously matted (by the artist/photographer himself) with a glassine sheet overlay. The matte-ing indicates how he thinks it should be framed: The thin white borders of the print itself cropped; the cropped image framed by large, plain-white borders. Full matted size is 15 X 15 inches. The Certificate of Authenticity comes in its own protective plastic sheet. Printed, using advanced digital technology, on archival watercolor paper in Buenos Aires, Argentina to museum-quality standards. Published to commemorate the artist/photographer's third invitation and participation at the Venice Biennale in 2017, making him the very first and only Latin-American artist thus far to be thrice-honored by the most prestigious art retrospective in the world. Most artists would consider themselves fortunate to be invited to participate even once. Presents Luis Gonzalez Palma's "Hija de la Vida"/"Daughter of Life". Shows a stunningly beautiful portrait of a lovely, young Latin-American woman crowned with a bouquet of fresh flowers. She is the iconic symbol of the promise of youth, the beauty of innocence, and their imminent loss. Just as the flowers on her head will fade, so will she in time is LGP's poignant message. "Gonzalez Palma's images unfold with increasing significance, resulting in an underlying sense of tension and foreboding that is only slightly eased by their sheer loveliness" (A. D. Miller). An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. This copy of the commemorative original color print is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Certificate of Authenticity that comes with it. The latter is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Luis Gonzalez Palma. This print is an instant collectible, and will become a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: As is his custom, the artist/photographer numbered and signed the Certificate, NOT the print. Once the matted print is framed, the Certificate should be attached to the back for posterity. LGP will issue NO other print size, and will NOT reissue the print once all of the editioned copies are sold. The last copies of the print now command between $500 and up, depending on the edition number. A rare print thus. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $400.00
