Jim Flora left a huge legacy of untitled—and unseen—art. We’re offering this screen print of a curious couple painted by Flora in the mid-1960s. Entangled Couple was discovered (along with a dozen more) in an artist’s sketch tablet in the Flora collection.
The prints were produced in a limited edition of 100 using Flora archivist Barbara Economon’s high-resolution digital scan of the original painting. The trademark “Flora” signature — mid-1960s vintage — which did not appear on the original works, has been added in the lower right of each print.
Each printed and trimmed sheet is 16″ x 12″ (including a 3/4″ margin around the active artwork). The prints use acrylic screen inks on off-white 100-lb., archival-quality, uncoated cover stock (French Paper Co.’s “Whitewash”). Each print is hand-numbered on the front and authenticated on the reverse.
Edition prints for this work are sold out. However, we are offering the existing printer’s proofs (25 were originally produced). The proofs are of comparable quality, but have a different numbering protocol than the edition copies (“PP” before the number). Great effort is made to ensure the quality and craftmanship of each print. Given the organic nature of the screen printing process, small spots or specks are often present on some prints. However, such minute imperfections are common and do not detract or distract from the image itself.
