Title Page for the State of Israel

1948. Szyk, Arthur. 1st ed. 6.5" x8" Lithograph. Stamped First Edition on verso. The artist's small printed signature often is mistaken for an actual autograph. In 1945, he was commissioned by Canadian philatelist Kasimir Bileski to create illustrations for a series of stamps depicting the Visual History of Nations (United Nations). He also designed the stamp album frontispieces for nine countries, including one for Israel, which intricately weaves together biblical and historical figures, symbols, and Hebrew script to visually tell the story of 4,000 years of Jewish history including the organization of the 12 tribes of Israel, The Exodus, the Bar-Kokhba Revolt, the prophecies of Ezekiel, and the creation of the State of Israel. Fine, with 11"x14" matte. Fine. Item #30834

Price: $150.00
