An Artist’s Proof (AP) is a number marking which appears on certain print editions. This is outside the regular edition, but printed at the same time of the regular edition from the same plates without changes. By custom, the artist retains the A/Ps for his personal use or sale. Typically, 10% of the edition total is designated as A/P, or in the case of a small edition, five graphics are usually so designated.
Karel Appel is one of the founding members of the CoBrA movement in the 1950s. Later Appel emerged as one of the most important modern artists of the 20th century for his use of color. Appel is held in the collections of innumerable museums worldwide.
“My paint tube is like a rocket which describes its own space. I try to make the impossible possible. What is happening I cannot forsee; it is a surprise. Painting, like passion, is an emotion full of truth and rings a living sound–like the roar coming from the lion’s breast.”
