About

An original signed 8 color screenprint with Gold foil on 400gsm Velin Arches Blanc archival paper by English artist Gerald Laing (1936-2011) titled "VB II - Victoria Beckham", 2007. Hand pencil signed by Laing lower left, and dated, titled, and numbered lower left. Limited edition: 51/90. Printed by Artizan Editions, Hove, England and published by the artist, Gerald Laing. Sheet size: 28.25" x 23". Image size: 22" x 18". In excellent condition. Victoria Caroline Beckham (born 17 April 1974) is an English businesswoman, fashion designer, model and singer. In the late 1990s, Beckham rose to fame with the all-female pop group Spice Girls and was dubbed Posh Spice by the July 1996 issue of the British music magazine Top of the Pops. After the Spice Girls split, she was signed to Virgin Records and Telstar Records and had four UK Top 10 singles. Her first release, "Out of Your Mind", reached Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart. Gerald Ogilvie Laing (11 February 1936 – 23 November 2011) was a British pop artist and sculptor. He lived in the Scottish Highlands. Laing was born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1936. He grew up during World War II and experienced the Battle of Britain as young boy. He attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and served with the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers as a lieutenant in Ireland and Germany. He soon realized that the military was not what he was looking for and attended Saint Martin's School of Art in London. At the beginning of the 1960s, while still at Saint Martin's, Laing was introduced to artists in New York City. He met Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Rosenquist and Robert Indiana. After art school he moved there, and with his connections, his art career began to take off. Laing's career took him from the avant-garde world of 1960s pop art, through minimalist sculpture, followed by representational sculpture and then back full circle to his pop art roots. In 1993 the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh staged a retrospective exhibition of his work. In 2012 Sims Reed Gallery staged an exhibition of his prints and multiples, his most comprehensive show of work to date. Laing did a series of anti-war paintings, based primarily on photographs from the atrocities at Abu Ghraib. These paintings were the beginning of his return to pop art. They were followed in 2004 by a series of Amy Winehouse paintings, as well as a painting of Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss. On 19 February 2012 a bronze sculpture by Laing, Dreamer, was stolen from Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow. In February 2014, Laing's Brigitte Bardot painting from 1963 work sold for £902,500 in an auction at Christie’s in London, a record sum for the artist.
