Guerrilla Girls: Nine Text Posters.

Eight lithographic posters printed on white paper, one printed on pink, including the following: Artforhim; Guerilla Girls' Identities Exposed!; Women in America Early Only 2/3 of What Men Do. Women Artists Earn Only 1/3 of What Men Artists Do., with a graphic of a dollar bill above; Guerilla Girls' Definition of a Hypocrite; Without the Vision of Women Artists and Artists of Color. You're Seeing Less than Half the Picture; Dearest Art Collector, on pink paper; At Last! Museums Will No Longer Discriminate Against Women and Minority Artists.*; The John D. and Catharine T. McGuerrilla Foundation Genius Award to Arne Glimcher; [and] The Advantages of Being a Woman Artist, some signs of handling, a few corner pinholes, generally good, sizes vary, each about 23 x 18 in. (9)

It is possible that these nine posters were taken from Guerilla Girls Talk Back, a portfolio of thirty posters published in an edition of fifty circa 1985-1990. These posters are the correct size, and Dearest Art Collector in script printed on pink paper may have been issued as such for the portfolio.
