    Complete Set of Fine Art Prints of Armenian-American Artist Hovsep Pushman, Most Prints Signed

    [Hovsep Pushman, artist]. Complete set of Twenty-Nine Fine Art Collotype Prints of Masterpiece Paintings by Hovsep Pushman. [Dresden; England; West Germany; Austria: 1934-1971]. Sheet dimensions approximately 30 x 27 inches to 26 x 20 inches. A wonderful, complete collection of the entire output of Pushman as published collotype fine art prints, the first ten examples of which are now very difficult to find, if not virtually unobtainable (these being published from 1934 until the middle 1940s). This example of a complete set is from Pushman's own stock, and is consigned by the executrix of his estate. Hovsep Pushman was one of those rare illustrious personages who during his own lifetime experienced the affection, reception, demand and admiration of collectors, museums and connoisseurs of contemplative art. With the commencement of fine color reproductions of Pushman's work, an even greater and more diverse public was now able to possess and enjoy Pushman creations.

    In 1934, Hovsep Pushman and Kenneth Gallop, a director of Frost and Reed, Ltd., of Bristol and London, had the mutual good fortune to meet in New York City. During these meetings, an agreement was concluded whereby this internationally renowned publisher of fine art prints would have the sole rights to issue color collotype reproductions of Hovsep Pushman's work. Bearing the inscription of the British Guild Seal, the signed artist proofs would have only one limited edition and would be the finest quality. Also, great care and attention would be given to details, as trial proof progressives would be submitted to the artist for corrective changes before publication. This mutually satisf actory association between Hovsep Pushman and Frost and Reed, Ltd., covered a period of forty years, until the artist's death, during which time twenty-nine subjects were published.

    A complete list of the twenty-nine prints is available on line, giving their: Title, paper size, print size, date of publication, place of publication, and number of copies made. From the collection of a gentleman of New York.
