Howard Finster Poster “Youth of Elvis”
“Youth of Elvis”. Four color Poster on gloss paper stock. 12.75” x 23.5”. Reproduction of painting. Hand signed by Howard Finster in gold metallic marker on right front corner w/guardian angel on solid black background. No #; no year; no publisher stated.
Stored in Plexiglass poster frame with heavy cover stock between poster and backing board for archival integrity. Stored in smoke free environment with low light conditions and never exposed to sunlight. Bright and vibrant colors, as new. Zero defects: no holes, no scratches, no tears, and no creases.
**NOTE: As typical in offset printing (4-color process lithography or 4-color printing) the paper stock used is not archival quality. Despite the best attempt at long-term storage the paper stock has "foxing" - yellow spots - as shown on reverse side. The front is in good condition because of heavy ink coverage. When framed and matted this will make a fine presentation of a colorful poster.
Howard Finster loved Elvis.
Acquired from Howard Finster at Paradise Gardens in Summerville, Georgia. I met Howard there and at statewide art festivals approximately a dozen times. R.E.M filmed their video Radio Free Europe at Paradise Gardens—Howard makes a brief appearance near its conclusion.
