Bukowski has done two paintings, one on each side of a thick sheet of artist's paper. One painting is a bold color portrait of an interracial couple that lived in Bukowski's building in Los Angeles in the '60s. They are shown here standing in their underwear, holding hands, looking directly at the viewer. The other work is an abstract done in black paint utilizing images the came into Bukowski's mind as he was listening to a Laker's game on the radio...a bottle of Miller beer, a tire with "tubeless" painted below, and a portrait of an athlete's face, with "Lakers / KABC" painted in the top corner. Both paintings are signed "Buk." Two very nice examples of Bukowski's work, matted and framed under glass so both sides are visible (couple of small dampstains to bottom edge of the "Lakers" painting). Each work measures approx. 15" x 11" framed to 21" x 16." We've never seen Bukowski works of this size surface on the market. Provenance: Bukowski's publisher, John Martin. Shipping at cost.

Price: $7,500.00
