Marino Marini (1901–1980)
“Two Pomonas” (aka “Zwei Pomonas”; “Due Pomone”], 1956, from the edition of 65 pencil-signed impressions. Note that I understand that this etching was later published in 1971 as plate X in an edition of 75 unsigned impressions in the album, “Tout près de Marino” (Everything Near to Marino), printed by Lacourière et Frélaut copperplate engraving works in Paris (see https://www.goldmarkart.com/art-for-sale/due-pomone).
Etching with pale plate tone on thick wove paper with wide margins, pencil-signed at lower right and inscribed with the edition number, 5/65, at lower left.
Size: (sheet) 56.5 x 38.1 cm; (plate) 26.1 x 18.7 cm

I am selling this superb impression of (arguably) one of Marini’s finest etchings in near pristine condition for a total cost of AU$1277 (currently US$931.78/EUR783.44/GBP706.66 at the time of this listing) including Express Mail (EMS) postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
