Item #6842

[Los Angeles]: Estate of Wallace Berman / Kohn Gallery, ca. 2010s. Offset. 21 x 17 in., matted to 24 x 20 in. Printed “W Berman” signature lower right. Near fine. 

Limited edition offset poster from the estate of Wallace Berman featuring the artist’s signature motif of a handheld transistor radio superimposed with found imagery. 

The image of a hand holding a compact transistor radio superimposed with found imagery was a common feature of Berman’s Verifax collages, his best-known body of work. Here four such images are arranged in a grid above a block of nonsense text, a graphic format used in several of his works. .
