    Item Details

    This is one of Russell Mills's most celebrated of illustrations. Entitled Echo it was used for the cover of the book: A Samuel Beckett Reader, published in the UK in 1983 by Picador, London. It was one of a series of 5 covers Mills created for Samuel Beckett books.

    Signed & dated by Russell Mills, it is oil on some kind of hard sheet (the whole thing is quite heavy) which has been set on board and framed by the artist himself. Looks absolutely gorgeous, and really has to be seen to be believed.

    Overall it is sized 26" by 20" inches approx. Mills's contact details are on the reverse.

    Rare chance to own one of the most important of Russell Mills' works. Moreover, because the subject matter is of one of the greatest writers ever, an icon in 20th-century literature, Beckett admirers will be fascinated by the haunting quality of it. The face, the face of despair, of sorrow and of the ridiculous.

    Great condition (see scans below). Sorry about the glare from the lights on the scans; will get more up in due course.

    Buy Item & Condition

    A 1 off. Unique on the market.

    Price: 900.00 UK Sterling

    E-mail (ihuppert5@aol.com) to book an appointment to view piece and/or reserve item. We are in South East London. This piece is too heavy to send in the post so it will have to be collected. With the glass there is just too much of a chance that it will get damaged in the post no matter how well packaged it was.

    I've checked around and I don't think this is a bad price for an important work in the career of this artist. In fact it is a bit of a bargain when you compare prices. I acquired this directly from the artist 26 years ago or so and when you take in inflation and the passage of time I didn't pay much less for it way back then! Lordy, it was an obscene amount of money back then, when I think about it! It could of bought you a house back in them days. I exaggerate, of course. A little. Seriously though, I do remember that I had to work all the hours I could and really save for it simply because I loved it.

    Payment can be made to Lenin Imports by bank transfer, cheque, po, money order, international money order, cash by registered mail. Please enclose title of item ordering and return address.
