Tea at the Signorina Fabbri. Artist’s proof, sheet: 21 ¾ in x 20 ¼ in; image: 17 3/4 in x 17 ½ in. A colored etching, signed, “Mel Silverman,” and dated “1965” in graphite below the image. Following his training at Chicago’s Art Institute, Mel Silverman was given a fellowship to travel in Europe for a year. His children’s book illustrations and his works on paper establish him as a major American talent despite his early death. Condition is fine.
