There are a lot of Bob De Moor serigraphs available online, some are genuine but a lot are actually counterfeits. But one which surely is genuine is the one currently on auction on Catawiki (where it has already reached € 400 605). It’s a folder holding a set of 7 serigraphs plus 1 lithograph by Bob De Moor.

Originally published in 1985 by the Brussels based Les Editions Ligne Claire this rare item was released on 109 copies only (including 24 copies which never reached the market). The one auctioned right now is one of the 85 ‘normal’ editions.

Over the years some of the included serigraphs have been auctioned separately, not because the folders were cut into parts, but because 6 of the serigraphs plus the lithograph were published in various series holding 1 to 4 serigraphs on 150 copies: 4 serigraps (86/150 to 150/150), 1 serigraph and 1 lithograph (86/101 to 101/101), 1 serigraph (86/124 to 124/124).

The folder (and prints) measure 50 x 70 cm and all the prints are in color except for the Monsieur Tric and the Cori drawing ‘Ecole de Navigation’. The latter is a pencil reproduction.
