Houdini Water Torture Cell is a hand pulled fine art lithograph by S2 Art, of the original 2-sheet poster.
The now vintage 2-sheet was created to advertise Houdini's famous "Chinese Water Torture Cell' act, which he first performed in Berlin at the Circus Busch on September 21, 1912.
The lithograph is pulled, on two separate sheets of paper, through an antique German Dufa printing press on Coventry smoot cotton paper.
This is not a reprint or reproduction. It is a remastered, recreated, original work of art.
This piece was produced at S2 Editions Atelier, New York City, in 2000, under the guidance of the Ré Society, Ltd, and S2 Art company.
This lithograph bears the trademark of the Ré Society, plus the blind stamped emblem of the S2 Editions Atelier. The signature of the chromist is also printed unobtrusively on this lithograph in order to distinguish it from the original Golden Age poster.
The lithograph is sequentially numbered in pencil in the lower left border, by a curator at S2 Editions.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity by S2 Art Group, Ltd. Item is packaged and shipped in a museum quality tube.
Dimensions: 38" x 87" (over 7 feet)
