Charles BLACKMAN (1928 - 2018)
In ‘Skipping Girl’ Charles Blackman nods, tongue-in-cheek towards an icon of the Melbourne skyline - the neon sign for ‘Skipping Girl Vinegar’. Drive down Victoria Street and there she beams, unmissable, carefree and forever mid-skip. In Blackman’s rendition however, she also speaks to a rapidly changing modern world - where advertising, industrialisation and youth were colliding like never before.
‘Skipping Girl’ is initialed and signed by the artist, limited in edition to 125, blind embossed with the Blackman seal, accompanied by a Letter of Provenance and comprised of the finest quality museum-grade materials.

To live with his visual poetry promises to be an ever-enriching experience for you and your family.
