Made by ‘Aat Veldhoen’ after own design. Arie Johannes (“Aat”) Veldhoen (1934-) was a Dutch painter and draughtsman. However, from the 1960’s he started drawing directly on offset plates, and printing these as rotaprints. These were sold directly from a cargo bike in Amsterdam. He is mainly known for the erotic prints he made in the early 1960’s, although Veldhoen is still active.
Condition: Very good, given age. Remains of attachment (to wall or notice board) to the rear top edge. Minimal surface damage in the top margin on the rear (visible on front as a slightly darker spot). Remains of attachment to matting in the top margins rear. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully.
