Rostagni has Bush in a Box

Jean-Christian Rostagni first showed his photographs here in the fall of 2006, and has continued to be an important artist for us. He not only spends days printing and making one-of-a-kind frames, he also makes custom travel boxes for many of his works. The photo shows M. Rostagni with "Bush is a Terrorist" ready to travel. The work inside the box is aproximately 48x51 inches - and the box has room to spare.

We have signed, numbered Rostagni prints, both framed and un-framed at surprisingly good prices. M. Rostagni is a world-class artist and craftsman. The quality of his work is more like masters of the 1960s than artists active today - that is to be taken as a superlative, since so many artists today have taken the easy road, rather than the lavish treatment afforded every one of Rostagni's works.
