    [Hovsep Pushman, artist]. SIGNED/LIMITED. Original Collotype Print of Masterpiece Painting by Hovsep Pushman, Gift to the Sun God. Berlin, 1961. One of only 534 copies, this example is from Pushman's own stock, and is consigned by the executrix of his estate. Signed by the artist in pencil. Measures 31" x 21". Fine.

    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 satisfactory 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.
    From the collection of a gentleman of New York.
