Sam Haskins at Basel Miami Art Fair

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Just a week before Sam's death he worked with me to produce the first and sadly, we now know, last series of limited edition prints of his work for the Milk Gallery stand at Basel Miami. Four images, linked by a theme of American Landscape, in a set of 10 prints each. Today (until Sunday, December 6, 2009) they go on sale at the Milk Gallery stand at the Basel Miami Beach 2009 art fair in Florida.

Here are the four images.

In addition, at the request of Milk, Sam released two signed, previously unpublished Cowboy Kate images in the form of vintages, printed and retouched by Sam in his Johannesburg studio in 1963. These are very rare, most of Sam's vintage archive is unsigned.

A catalogue of the images on offer at Basel Miami, exactly as prepared by Sam can be found in this PDF file. There is also an updated one page bio available here. Please note that the full version of Sam's bio on this blog has not been updated yet.
