Artist proof of "The Tango"

Gorey, Edward (illus.)

(Stuttgart): Edition Domberger, 1975. Single sheet, measuring 11 3/4 by 9 7/16 inches, showing a couple dancing from Edward Gorey's book The Other Statue. Signed by the author with a note in pencil stating that this is an "Artist proof for Domberger." The print is one in a series of seven serigraphs printed in 1975 by Domberger for Diogenes Verlag, Gorey's European publisher. The serigraphs were issued in an edition of 125, though it is unclear how many proof prints were made. Diogenes also issued a series of six etchings by Gorey that same year. Domberger was, and still is, a fine art printer, and their skillful use of silkscreen printing techniques reproduces all the dramatic contrasts of light and shadow and intricate detailing of the original. Embossed "Printed by Domberger Stuttgart" in lower left corner. Fine. Item #32039
