"Three Ships in Harbor" by Max Gunther, Swiss, (1934-1974)
Color lithograph, 1969, ed. unknown, 11/6 x 11-5/8, signed & dated proof inscribed to Sylvan & Lillian Cole, on warm white wove paper. From the Sylvan Cole estate. Born in Zurich, in Gunther's short life he lived in London, Scandinavia, and Italy, but traveled even more broadly. His architectural subjects manifest a fascination with pattern, structure and color.
