Item #40375 Live Give Love. Martin SHARP.
Live Give Love.


Live Give Love.

No place: no date (c. 1971). Offset litho poster printed in red and blue on off-white paper. 48x60.5cm.

A later variant of the original 1968 silver foil poster, designed for backlit projection. This copy lacks the blank section to the right of the image and the edges appear to have been trimmed, possibly to allow for the poster’s use as a lampshade cover (apparently an intended purpose for it).

Short closed tear to left edge, with small puncture 4cm. from the edge; four old corner pinholes; o/w Very Good plus. An extremely rare variant of Sharp’s psychedelicised version of Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam”, a version brought vividly to life when lit from behind.

NB. the first image shows the poster with backlighting; the second image shows the poster without backlighting.
