Sale 38 Lot 1422

A 1985 poster (unsigned) titled "Free South Africa" measuring 48" x 48", Haring's pictorial commentary on an apartheid system within South Africa that held Nelson Mandela in prison and had been forcibly relocating thousands of black South Africans to group areas for managed containment. Haring designed, printed, and distributed 20,000 copies of this poster himself, which depicts a chained black outline figure stepping on the undersized white figure controlling the chain. Moderate wear around edges, a 2" tear at bottom, a repaired 4" marginal puncture, certainly worthy of proper restoration. Overall very good.
Estimate $ 200-300
