The Flying Dutchman

Prix régulier $250.00 Solde

Jean Sariano's keen interest in representing minimalist scenes of fantasy is apparent in this print, in which a figure assumed to the the namesake of the piece soars above a field of tulips. Playing on the historical event of Tulipmania in the Netherlands, this print combines the idea of the legendary ghost-ship, the Flying Dutchman, with the economic rise and fall of tulip bulbs as a commodity. Humorous and playful, this scene is typical of the artist.
