Artist, David Stone Martin 1913-1992 xpost pen & ink
I believe I have my hands on an original piece of old art by this artist. From what I gather on the internet, it's the art used for a 1955 album cover ("Ralph Burns Among the Jatps") and it is "exact." The paper is art paper (little bit of texture), and on the back is a lighter paper-colored image of the front. Is this a lithograph and possibly the back is an imprint from that? I've searched the internet and do not find one single "copy" of this particular art piece, which leads me to believe it could be the real deal. Anybody got any ideas? BTW, I came to this forum because David Stone Martin is a renowned illustrator, especially for jazz album covers, but I know very little about his medium... Thank you very much.
