Freedom For Political Prisoners. Wilfred Owen Brigade.

Freedom For Political Prisoners

San Francisco: Wilfred Owen Brigade, 1976. An early work by the important San Francisco revolutionary art collective known briefly (from about 1975-1977) as the Wilfred Owen Brigade and later as the San Francisco Poster Brigade. Though the SFPB produced and posted its work anonymously, the primary creative force behind the group was Rachel Romero, still active as an artist and printmaker in Northern California. Others were involved, including artist/curator/impresario Leon Klayman who, according to Romero, played primarily an organizational and distributional role. Most SFPB works were produced first by linocut, then reproduced in larger quantities by photo-offset; the original block-prints are uncommon. This is a particularly early and uncommon graphic. Offsest lithographed poster, 17" x 25". Printed in black on heavy poster stock, off-white. Fine example, archivally hinged to acid-free backing, in gallery frame.
