Henryk Berlewi (1894 – 1967)

Henryk Berlewi. Mechano-Faktur, 1924-1960

Ta seriografia Henryka Berlewiego pojawia się czasami na aukcjach i zależnie od kondycji pracy ceny potrafią szybować dość wysoko. Niedawno w Lempertz sprzedano inny egzemplarz Mechano-Faktury za ponad 11,000 euro. Była to odbitka wyglądająca, moim zdaniem, nieco lepiej i z wyraźniejszą dedykacją i sygnaturą autora.
