Original offset lithograph poem poster, "One of the World's Giant Queens," SIGNED as called for by Ford on the bottom margin. As with most of Ford's poem posters, this screenprint is unique in terms of color scheme, based on a single print design, with an indeterminate number of each issued.Brother to actress and model Ruth Ford and Russian painter Pavel Tchelitchew's parter, Charles Henri Ford was an overlooked artistic polymath of his own. With film critic Parker Tyler, Ford co-authored "The Young and Evil" (1933) one of the earliest landmarks of twentieth century gay literature. He published his first book of poetry in 1938, "The Garden of Disorder," and contributed to anthologies, such as "New Directions" (1940), in the following years. He served as editor of the art magazine "View" and was a prolific photographer of the New York art world. All his interests and work culminated in a series layered offset-lithograph collages. Created in very limited runs at Vassily Papachrysanthou's workshop in Athens, these compositions combine lines of Ford's poetry with photography, often portraiture, and geometric patterns, with colors varying between prints. First exhibited at New York's Cordier & Ekstrom Gallery, the show became the subject of Ford's 1967 documentary film "Poem Posters," and featured in numerous gallery exhibitions since including Charles Henri Ford Printed Matter 1929-1969 at Ubu Gallery in 1999 and Charles Henri Ford at Between Bridges in 2007. 27.5 x 39.5 inches.
