The Serigraph is from an edition size of 30 and is not framed. The condition was rated A: Mint. Additional details: Signed, Labeled a "T.P." (Trial Proof), and Numbered out of 30 in pencil by Robert Indiana. Limited Edition Serigraph published by Marco Fine Arts Contemporary Atelier and released as part of the large portfolio and book entitled "The American Dream". Detail from 'The American Dream": "The Locomotive, for one who grew up in the Midwest in the mid-century, was as ritual and magical a part of life as cars were in 60's Los Angeles. This was even more to Indiana since his grandfather was a train engineer. Indiana pays homage to his grandfather and to his second home in C.Slip by referring to 25. Again, Indiana searches across the two dimensional plane inlaying his vision with precision of a fine engineer. At first glance the artwork appears to be a pattern of shapes rather than a singular image and that effect of ideas within forms, forms within ideas --a concrete-like poetry -- is a seminal to Indiana's work."
