Paul Binnie, Scottish, b. 1967

Travels with the Master: New York (color separation)
(Meisho To No Tabi: Nyu-yoruku)

with colored pencil, with the print title on the upper left margin, Meisho To No Tabi: Nyu-yoruku, and inscribed with notations in the artists hand regarding the dimensions and planned color blocks (11 blocks total); signed in pencil on the bottom margin, Colored Pencil Colour Separation, Paul Binnie, Spring/Summer 2008

1 5/8 by 8 1/4 in., 29.5 by 21 cm

This is a hand-colored copy of the design, but it is apparently not based on the final key-block proof but of an earlier drawing. The sharp-eyed art sleuth may find a few minor variations to the black outline of this version.
