Scheherazade – Alberto Vargas (SOLD)



Extremely Rare Limited Edition Artist’s Proof

Hand Signed and Numbered by Alberto Vargas

32 x 37

Out of stock


Unlike the other artists of his era, Vargas would never allow his works to be reproduced as limited editions, let alone sign and number them. However, prior to his death (late 1982), he chose what he considered his best works to be reproduced. This image is one of the artist’s favorite works of art from the 1920’s. As somewhat of an eccentric and definitely an individual, he then chose to sign and number only 50 of each Artist Proof Prints. In this painting of Scheherazade, the legendary princess who crafted the tales of 1001 Arabian Nights [posed here by Marie Prevost, star of the Ziegfeld stage and the silent screen], Alberto Vargas captures the magic and beauty of the imaginative princess.
