A nice lithograph by the re-known artist Peter Saul. We’re not sure when this lithograph is dated from, but it is older and in a conservation frame. Frame has some losses.
Good overall condition with some lifting at the corners. Minor discoloration. A brief biography of the artist follows from askart:

Peter Saul, a painter, was born in San Francisco in 1934. He studied at the California School of Fine Arts there from 1950 to 1952, and at Washington University from 1952 to 1956, before traveling to Europe, where he remained until 1962.

A parodist and an absurdist, he comments mordantly on aspects of contemporary life, ranging from art, to politics, to the current infatuation with the past. Using garish Day-Glo colors, he creates often crowded canvases filled with violently caricatured and grossly exaggerated forms, misspelled words, puns and odd perspectives. His works both influenced and were influenced by the underground comic books of the early 1970s.
