Rocco Negri Cotton Pickers #2 Framed Ltd Edition Print 16/50
Design Plus Gallery presents a Ltd Edition Print by Rocco Negri, an American Postwar & Contemporary artist who was born in 1930. Cotton Pickers #2 is a departure for his work as a Children’s book illustrator, but retaining the same graphic nature. A lovely pastoral scene is depicted, interrupted by the adult concept of work. Print has begun to wrinkle under the glass; fair condition.
“Born June 26, 1932 in Italty, Negri attended the Aurel Kessler Academy in Buenos Aries, Argentina from 1953-1954 and the Art Students League in New York from 1959-1960. Negri said that the Aurel Kessler Academy first introduced him to art which was a whole new universe for me. Negri says he loves illustrating children’s books because children are so pure in appreciation and perception. They have no inhibition or discrimination to cloud their minds or hearts.”
