KURT VONNEGUT (b. 1922). American novelist and graphic artist whose experience as an air force POW during the firebombing of Dresden, Germany, is recounted in his popular novel Slaughterhouse-Five (1969).

This rare artwork has been personally hand signed by the late Kurt Vonnegut in dark pencil, Signed limited edition No. 5/50. One of four in his series of serigraphs called "Gilded Cage", this hand-printed silkscreen print of an open birdcage, 14"x21", is double pulled in gold with clear overprint on White Rising Stonehenge deckle edge cotton paper. Professionally double matted and framed in a museum-quality glass. The frame alone is over a $400 value.

The birdcage represents the home of the parakeet named Bill belonging to Vonnegut's character Trout, who offers Bill three wishes and the chance for freedom. The wise bird however chooses to return to his cage. Trout believes this to be the smartest choice of all because then Bill will always have something left to wish for. Attractively presented under museum quality glass within custom double matting and simple gold contemporary frame. Overall 22"x29". A great collectible from the series that first brought Vonnegut to attention as a graphic artist. Investment potential.
