Feldman/Schellmann II.367-370. Comment(s): This "mini-portfolio" is scarce and sought after, especially since the set of four ‘Truck’ editioned screenprints fetched $118,750 at Christie's, New York (October 27, 2015, lot #301). The set is rarely seen and ‘Gordon’s’ does not record a signed example at auction. The only record of an unsigned set in ‘Gordon’s’ is a sale for $3,250 at Rago Arts & Auction on November 17, 2012, lot #668. Published by Hermann Wunsche, Bonn, Germany, in cooperation with the Bundesverband des Deutschen Guterfernverkehrs to announce and commemorate the XXth World Congress of the International Road Transport Union at Frankfurt, Germany, June 2 to June 6, 1986. The set of four works was exhibited at Hans Schuller, Bonn, Germany, from July 3 to August 23, 1986, and the invitation/announcement cards were also used on that occasion.
