Title Painting; John Falter; Acrylic; Matted
Object Name Painting
Description Acrylic painting on a transparency overlying the Currier & Ives print "Arguing the Point." The print, a color lithograph on white paper, features three men standing and conversing with a dog sitting in front of them. To the left of the group is a stack of wood. To the right is a log, ax and a little girl pulling at the pants of one of the men. In the background are trees, log houses, and a clear darkening sky. Beneath the print is the manufacturer's name and location as well as the title. Printed below the left and right corners are the artists. The transparency overlies the print and changes the scene so that the three men are smoking and holding Lark cigarette cartons. The girl is pointing toward the log house, burning in the background. The dog's eyes are bugged. The print and the transparency are taped to an illustration board, which serves as a mat. On the bottom edge of the mat graphite notes are written: "Would remove Lark carton // replace with 'Brand X' carton."
