Creation of Adam (Regular Signed & Numbered Edition) Last Available Prints From the Edition.


This work in Pastel by artist Bradley J. Parrish titled “Creation of Adam “ was done in 1973 when the artist was only 15 years old. This is one of the 500 original lithographs produced for the limited edition of only 500.

This is one of if not the artist's most powerful works this artist has ever created. It is also one of the earliest reproductions of the artist's works that is signed by him and numbered. The 'Artist Proof Edition' is the most highly sought after reproduction in the 1986 release of this edition because it comes from the 'Artist Proof Edition' of only 50 prints made and hand selected by the artist as the finest pieces in the printing run.

The original pastel done by Brad in 1973 was partially destroyed back in 1985 after he found that the hairspray his art teacher said he could use the protect the pastel from coming off the paper did not work. It beaded up and taking the pastel with it as it fell over the years leaving the paper exposed. Brad desperately tried to apply additional pastel to the piece and could not go back years to when he had the inspiration to paint this piece. The piece was ruined however, Brad remembered photographing this piece after he completed it and before he sprayed it with hairspray. These reproductions were made from slides that the artist shot back in 1973.
