Walter Knabe Artwork Annie 86 Special Limited Edition Screenprint

$3,000 Screenprint 

Edition of 200 plus 16 Artist Proofs

26" X 18" Unframed

From the Knabe Mankowitz Collection

A special collaboration between Walter and renowned English rock and roll photographer, Gered Mankowitz. 

The fifth in the collection is Annie Lennox, titled “Annie ‘86”. The edition of 200 was created using a powerful color photo of Annie from Gered’s final session with the Eurythmics. It was shot in Paris for the cover of their “Revenge” album in 1986. Gered said it was always a joy working with Annie, and she was a most wonderful subject to photograph.

Walter and Gered collaborated to create mesmerizing artwork that highlighted the simplicity of Gered’s photo. Focus was placed on Annie’s captivating eyes and red lips to bring drama to the image that represents her powerful presence. Special consideration was given to printing her smooth and opaque, pale pink flesh tones. Her light hair coloration took three silkscreen revisions to achieve the white, textured punk vibe.

The 27” x 18” piece is signed by both Knabe and Mankowitz. It blends Knabe’s signature hand crafted screen printing and hand printed detail, using 14 paint colors with separate screens layered on tactile paper.

A certificate of authenticity, signed by both Walter Knabe and Gered Mankowitz, will be provided along with the purchase of the screen print.
