Rupert Jasen Smith established himself in the art world as both an artist and as master printer for Andy Warhol. Warhol was so happy with Smith's work that he permitted Smith's blindstamp alongside his own signature. This grouping from the Lures series demonstrates Smith's command of color and texture in printmaking.

Overall good condition; some minor nicks to framing and fading; one examined out of frame.
