“Incarnation” Art Print by Mark Ryden (Onsale Info)

Mark Ryden has returned with another BEAUTIFUL new art print.  “Incarnation” is a 26″ x 37″ lithograph, has an edition of 500, and will be $500.  Sure, we all wish it was a different medium, and sure, it’s a bit expensive, but who else is putting out work that looks this good?  Noone.  It goes up Thursday, April 1st at 8am PST.  Visit PorterhouseArt.com.

  1. $500 for a litho ?
    I guess a lot depends on the paper. If its a thick matt stock then ok.

  2. It looks like it has an embossing on it. Thats cool.

  3. how does a litho differ from a glicee?

  4. that’s $250.000 not bad

  5. I’ll get one on ebay for $400 in 3 weeks.

  6. Lithography is one of the most time consuming printmaking process as you have to draw the image on a stone, along with each color. And not only that, you have to work with a master prints-man who knows what they are doing to get the image consistently inked, registered, etc. I am not sure why they are calling this a litho print, since it looks like a digital print/Giclée. Anyone know?

  7. I’m sure it isn’t traditional stone litho, I dont think you could get that much detail. Lithography usually refers to the printing process, not necessarily the material used. Though if you take a litho class in college, you can expect to use stones. This is most likely modern offset lithography, with metal plates for each separated color. Its much more hands-on and time consuming than a digital giclee.

    The price for Ryden prints usually takes me back for a second, but worse is the idea of pricing art based on the materials used. You’re paying for the art, not the paper and ink. Its worth exactly how much someone will pay for it, and sooner or later Ryden’s prints always sell out.

  8. The grammatical error bugs me enough that I would only be looking at that if I purchased it.


  9. I agree, Luke, it’s like we’re guaranteed one egregious apostrophe/quotation mark a month (remember that video game podcast poster from a few weeks back?).

  10. …and this one will sell out later rather than sooner…

  11. what grammar error?

    spelling a word differently, does not constitute a grammor air……

  12. The apostrophe is upside-down, so it’s basically a comma.

  13. The apostrophe is fine. Aside from the fact that it shouldn’t be there. 90s is plural, not possessive.

    When did this become a grammar forum anyway?

  14. It should be:
    THE GAY 90s

    No apostrophe. But that’s being pretty nitpicky since it’s pretty much accepted by everyone to be somewhat “ok”.

  15. The image is really lovely, do not get me wrong. Price point is great too considering his last few shows, I wish that the image was left alone. Did not simply look like a blown up flyer.

    Few other fans commented on the 90s error as well.


  16. In a 2-digit representation of a year, the apostrophe goes before the number: ’90s. It’s there to substitute for the missing digits.

  17. love this and love the old style typo on the image border too – thats the old way of doing prints – remember meat is murder – class

  18. Litho means it will be one very pricey poster, all very sharpe but will still be on a gloss paper like you buy from all good poster shops.

  19. Seriously, $500? For an edition of 500. I’ll wait for it to go on sale on eBay also…

  20. Artistic license: a colloquial term, sometime euphemism, used to denote the distortion of fact, alteration of the conventions of grammar or language, or rewording of pre-existing text made by an artist to improve a piece of art.


  21. wooooow are people really complaining about the price? its mark goddamn ryden! he’s as A-List as this scene gets. he could get away with charging four figures for these easily.

  22. Im gonna try for this. I for one dont give a rats ass about an apostrophe or an upside down comma, or where it is placed.

    frame it out if you dont wanna look at it.

  23. this print makes me hungry.

  24. “Seriously, $500? For an edition of 500. I’ll wait for it to go on sale on eBay also…”

    Go on sale on Ebay? This print like pretty much all of his prints is only going to go up in price.

  25. Jon, I seriously doubt that the misplaced apostrophe was intentionally placed “by the artist to improve a piece of art”.

    It’s silly to dislike the print because of a grammatical error, but it’s equally silly to attribute an obivious typo to “artistic license”.


  27. Are people actually thinking this will go for more than $500 in the near future? If so, I think those particular people are high.

  28. BRC – So I’m assuming you’re Mark Ryden? Perhaps a mind reader?

    How you can know, without a doubt, that this is an “obvious” typo? The name of the show is “The Gay 90’s: Olde Tyme Art Show.” This is listed on Ryden’s personal website as well as the Paul Kasmin Gallery. I find it hard to believe that Ryden would just let that slide because of a typo.

    But hey, maybe I’m just being silly.

  29. it”s up.get some

  30. Ha Ha – some people make me laugh – good luck getting this one on ebay – have you not noticed that all Mark Ryden prints sell out in under 24 hours??? Yes they then do appear on ebay, but not for under their original price. I feel sorry for you for being so cheap. And for all you f**k nuts worried about apostrophes, suck on this”””””””””””””””””””:”

  31. I just HAVE to comment on the grammar conversation.
    The way he is using 90’s IS correct.
    “The Gay 90’s Olde Tyme Art Show.”

    90’s IS possesive of Olde Tyme Art Show. that’s all.
    …oh! and I think Ryden’s work is GENIUS.

  32. All I could think of was Lady GAGA’s recent outfit !

  33. You tell ’em Nicole! This edition sold out in 15 minutes, and the latest one “The Tree of Life” also lasted only 15 minutes. From the moment they sell out the prices go up and up. Anyone who takes grammer so seriously should surely know the difference between it and punctuation, no?
