Original, signed lithograph in colors on Arches watermarked wove paper by Witold-K, titled Symphony for the People. In this work, a long-standing theme of Witold-K’s, the wandering people, is combined with the theme of music. The work is signed and dated by the artist in pencil lower right, with the location of printing included (Paris). It is also labeled Hors Commerce (Apart from Sale) by the artist in pencil lower left. Hors Commerce impressions are typically limited to a handful of copies often distributed by the artist or publisher to special customers or galleries.
This work was printed in 1986, is sold out, and is rarely available on the market. The image is of a wandering group of people over a music staff. The work was purchased at auction in its original sleeve and has never been framed before, leaving the colors rich and bright. Photos of the lithograph are included on Witold-K’s website, along with photos of paintings he has done throughout his career on the theme of wandering people. See the book Witold-K at Sotheby’s, 2007, p. 173 for additional documentation.
