We guarantee the authenticity of this print, and will offer a certificate of authenticity on our gallery letterhead. This print is in mint condition, and is unframed. Alejandro lithographs, etchings and serigraphs are rare, difficult to find, and more than likely will appreciate dramatically over time. His giclees are much more common. He produces a very limited amount of work, and even less original printwork, and his work is very sought after. This print will be accompanied by the Alejandro book entitled "Ramon Alejandro". It was done by Art Tribu in Paris in 1999. MLA Gallery has the largest selection of Alejandro prints in the world. We offer a life-time trade in policy. Please inquire.
José Ramón Alejandro is a Cuban painter and writer. Since the late 1960s, his work has appeared in one-man shows in private galleries in Paris, Geneva, and Miami, as part of exhibitions in Israel and cities across Europe, and in exhibits of limited edition books illustrated by artists of note. The Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the Bibliothèque Municipale d’Angers in France, the San Diego Art Museum, and the Miami-Dade Public Library all include his works in their permanent collections.
Alejandro left Havana in the 1960s to live in Buenos Aires, Montevideo, and Paris, where he stayed for thirty years. In 1995, he moved to Miami. There he founded Editions Deleatur, a publisher focusing on Cuban writers within Cuba and abroad. Alejandro and his work are the subject of the essay collection Ramón Alejandro(L’Atelier des Brisants, 2006).
