Some weeks back we put up a post about Allen's artistic hand with signed editions, with book inscriptions, but, as we noted there (or did we?), that was just the tip of the iceberg. In 1996 in the very last year of his life, in L.A., he became feverishly engaged, for a while, at Gemini G.E.L, Sidney Felsen and Sidney Grinstein's legendary artist's lithograph workshop, and produced six extraordinary images (limited editions). Here are four of them (the other two we'll post tomorrow)
