The “String Game” plate # 109, product # 8007 as shown in Rie’s book “Rie Muñoz Portrait of Alaska” is a serigraph with hand coloring. There is 250 signed and numbered prints in the edition with 22 signed and numbered (ap) artist proofs and 3 (cp) color proofs. This was the 7th print released in 1980. On older art like this it is always wise to check with your local picture framer and make sure the framing materials are appropriate for the art work. The highest price we know of a pristine or mint condition print “String Game” Selling for was $1800.00 “. Mint or Pristine condition” as with art, coins and stamps, refers to a un-circulated or un-used in any way condition. However there doesn’t seem to be much difference in price with Rie’s art as long as it is in good condition framed or not.


Renown Northwest
Artist Ebba Rapp 1909-1985
‘Standing Pigeon‘

Standing Pigeon sculpture 1930 – 40s.  Mint condition with original price tag even! $1500.00

Ebba Rapp (1909-1985) was born and raised in Seattle and became a first-rate painter by the early 1930s. When Alexander Archipenko gave one of several visiting classes at the University of Washington, Rapp attended and introduced sculpture into her work. She assisted Archipenko in his classes and was asked to start the first sculpture department at her alma mater, Seattle’s progressive Cornish College of the Arts, in 1938.

One of the only female sculptors active in Seattle in the 1930s and 1940s, Rapp was recognized nationally when one of her sculptures was included in the American Art Today exhibition at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Besides painting and sculpture, she was an accomplished craftswoman and was one of the founders of the Seattle Clay Club. She mastered the art of enameling and also worked with Peter Voulkos (1924-2002) at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, during the 1950s. In addition to her national exhibitions, she completed numerous portrait and architectural commissions throughout the state.
