Vintage Marushka Silkscreen Prints

And then along came Marushka!
The nature-themed prints that sprang onto the scene in 1971 are our latest passion. Apparently, we're not alone, because the folks at Apartment Therapy also have the Marushka monkey on their backs. The simple graphic art on tan and white linen often features sea creatures and coastal scenes because of the company's Great Lakes location. The founder, an art instructor named Richard Sweet, named the business after his wife, Mary ("Marushka" is a Polish form of the name "Mary.")
So romantic!

The small ones (each is 16x14) are $20 each, and the large one (18x24) is $50; all three are available for $80.
