Purchased this lithograph at Rose Bowl Flea Market and am looking for info on it. Along the top it says "The object of nature is man" and along the bottom it says "The nature of man is style"

    Your photos are awfully small to see any details. Is there any signature or copyright information on the bottom? (might be under the frame). It looks like a modern reproduction to me... maybe from the 80s or 90s when Art Deco had a resurgence. I'm not an expert, but the frame makes me think that it's modern.

    Under a the frame, I found signed and numbered signature of Jennifer (last name illegible) and numbered 175/350. No copyright date but says it is "Number 5 in the Mercury Typography 'What's your Face?' series by the Morla Designs and screened by Hero Presentation Printing"
