John Baldessari (1931-* Santa Monica, CA)
Item Details
Description
''Three Moments'', The artist's interpretation of trusteeship: trapeze / high wire act, billiard table and board room, appears unsigned, printed photograph with hand-painted additions on paper in two parts laid to artist's board, irregular shape: 36'' H x 24'' W, est: $10,000/15,000
Note: '[The present work] is given to the recipients of the CalArts Trustees’ Awards, established in 1990 and granted annually to two outstanding leaders in the arts: one to a CalArts trustee and one to an arts benefactor. From 1992 to 1999, John Baldessari gave as the award a printed photograph version of this image with hand-painted additions. Approximately fourteen unique versions were given during 1992-99 before this edition was printed'' (S.C. Hurowitz and W. Weitman, ''John Baldessari: A Catalogue Raisonne of Prints and Multiples 1971-2007'', Manchester, VT, 2010). This print was awarded to trustee George Boone in 1998. According to a letter from Steven D. Lavine, President of California Institute of the Arts, and dated December 16, 1998, ''[This print] is John Baldessari's interpretation of trusteeship. The top image is the trapeze / high wire act necessary to keep an arts or educational organization going; the middle image suggests the way we all have to play the angles in these complex operations; the bottom image is one of calm deliberation at the Board table, with one Trustee apparently looking at his watch, perhaps with impatience....John created it especially for us; it is full of visual wit and imagination for which he is famous''.
Condition
Visual: The board in two parts, as stated, the upper image on one board and the center and lower images on a second board. The three images individually laid to the two boards. The lower board with slight bowing. The lower edge of the lower board with extensive water damage impacting the printed surface. Three tiny scattered losses on the right side of the red ball. Artist's graphite outlines around the balls. Not mounted or hinged within the original Jerry Solomon Enterprises, Inc. frame.
