A FEDERAL TRADEMARK (TM) AND SERVICE MARK (SM) OF STEVE KAUFMAN ART LICENSING LLC
The principals of Steve Kaufman Licensing LLC are honored and proud to oversee all licensing rights for the late pop artist Steve Alan Kaufman (SAK). We are committed to preserving Steve Kaufman’s legacy as a world-renowned artist and humanitarian. This includes operating on his behalf, and proactive monitoring of information circulating about him, published and online.
The official, authorized STEVE KAUFMAN (SAK) CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ will document and illustrate every confirmed work, and publish all known paintings, sculpture, commissions, and other art by Steve Kaufman. This ongoing, comprehensive project will range from his earliest works, albeit rare, to his final works in early 2010. Entries will include detailed histories of ownership, exhibitions, and literature.
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION MAY BE USED AS A SOURCE OF REFERENCE BY COLLECTORS, GALLERIES, AND AUCTION HOUSES:
• LIMITED EDITIONS •
These are signed and numbered works.
• OPEN EDITIONS •
These include Steve Kaufman’s 8"x 8" paintings including but not limited to: Santa, Liberty Heads, Hearts, Taxi, etc... and the paintings Steve presented as holiday gifts. These are many, and they are not numbered. However, all open editions were signed.
• UNIQUES •
Steve Kaufman is noted for hand-embellishing his works, and because every work was hand painted differently, one can say that every painting is an original in its own way. Most of Steve’s “Uniques” were done in editions of between 5 and 20, using complex screening processes and greater attention to fine details.
• ORIGINALS •
These are one-of-a-kind works, and very rare.
• OUT OF THE EDITION •
A signed but unnumbered painting from a limited edition, that was not included in the official count for the limited edition series.
• UNSIGNED PAINTINGS •
Steve Kaufman gave a small number of unsigned paintings as gifts during his lifetime.
Our work to assemble the official STEVE KAUFMAN (SAK) CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ began with Steve Kaufman Uniques and Limited Editions. In the near future, owners of Steve Kaufman art will be encouraged to participate by submitting information, images, and documentation for consideration. We thank you for your support of this exciting, definitive, and important project.
