Original illustration: Counterculture Collage.

1971-72. (Holden, Herbert). An original illustration showing an ensemble of images emblematic of the early 1970s social movements: a hand forming a peace sign, various illicit drugs, a revolver labeled “Saturday Night Special,” a sign demanding “End the War,” a couple on a motorcycle, a white woman wearing a fierce expression gripping a sign proclaiming “U.S.A. Love it or Leave it,” and a Black man with a raised fist. Finely executed in mixed media, including tempera, watercolor, conté crayon, pen, and ink over graphite on board. Signed "Holden" and dated with "AMR" as copyright. "AMR" refers to Applied Management Research, who commissioned the illustration, perhaps for marketing purposes. Chips to edges of boards, and corners somewhat rubbed. Near fine. Framed. (20 by 24 in.). Item #30499
