    Robert Crumb - "Duke of Ook" Serigraph Print, Proof Edition XIX e. a. (Oog & Blik and Lambiek, 1994). Alan Seidler, a.k.a. the "Duke of Ook" is (1) a brilliant maniac, (2) a clever fraud, or (3) a basically religious (or sacrilegious) composer working within a historical musical vein. Or maybe all three. He is known as one of the few pianists of our time with the rare gift of being able to improvise an endless stream of ragtime, blues, pop and classical riffs and never strike a wrong note. Ever. At any rate, he is the subject of this wonderful print (printed by Atelier Ernst Dinkla, Eindhoven, the Netherlands), originally a 1974 album cover from the legendary Blue Goose label, translated to a six-color serigraph print and signed by Crumb. It has an image area of 24" x 24", on 28" x 28" Hortus 240 gram weight 100% cotton archival paper. The original edition was 150 regular prints; this is one of a few proof editions, numbered (in Roman numerals) 19, from a run of only 25. Beautiful, wild stuff! From the collection of Barry Silbergeld of Art & Love of Music.
