Artist or Maker: APPEL, Karel (Dutch 1921 - 2006).
Provenance: From the eclectic collection of Dutch punk legend Paul Tornado
We have not been able to trace any other copy of the scarf. Dutch punk legend Paul Tornado acquired the work from the buyer of the art collection of Texoprint, Boekelo. Texoprint and De Nijverheid manufactured promotional gifts. The scarf might very well be a proof copy of a never executed production.
