The Pollock Gallery Limited, Toronto gallery label verso backing;
Private Collection, Toronto, ON


The entire edition of "Caracas E.A." was exclusive to the Pollock Gallery, Toronto. "Caracas E.A." is similar to paintings the artist did during his Bauhaus period, on glass. The Pollock gallery label verso backing provides the justification for this edition. It was advertised on the gallery label that the series would be available until March 15, 1974 at a special price of $300.
