"Pink Elephant in Handstand"

Gorey, Edward (illus.)

(Brewster, MA: Atelier Emily Trevor). Original etching. One of 95 copies, signed by Gorey. The image features a gymnastic elephant balanced on his front legs, his ears waving gracefully behind him. Elephants held special meaning for Gorey, who named his house Elephant House, after an elephant-shaped toilet he found on the property during renovations. He produced a number of etchings of the animals during his lifetime, but few were printed in color. Image measures 4 1/4 by 5 7/8 inches, printed on a sheet measuring 10 by 10 7/8 inches. Very fine. Item #27975

Price: $750.00
