Topanga, CA: Wallace Berman, 1967. Offset. 25 x 22 in., framed to 27 1/4 x 30 1/4 in. Signed and numbered by Berman in lower right corner, 87/100. Minor edge wear; else very good.
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 six such images are arranged in a grid above a block of nonsense text, a graphic format used in several of his works. This work is number 87 from the edition of 100 published by John Martin. .
