Gilbert & George | Last of the Pink Elephants















Gilbert & George
Last of the Pink Elephants
London, UK: Art For All, 1973
13.9 x 8.9 cm.
Edition size unknown

Eight letterpress and lithograph greeting cards with eight envelopes, on the theme of alcohol. Individual titles include 'London Dry', 'Bristol Cream', 'The Majors Port', and 'Dom Perignon'. Each card is signed by Gilbert & George. 

The above examples are addressed to Christo, art historian and former Kröller-Müller Museum director E.J. van Straaten, curator Jennifer Licht and the "directors" of the Amsterdam periodical Art & Project Bulletin (to which Gilbert and George contributed issue #73 to the series).

Originally distributed for free, the series has a value of approximately ten thousand dollars now. 


"We invented “Postal Sculptures” because we had no access to gallery or museum spaces. But we still wanted to speak as artists. The “Postal Sculptures” short-circuited the art world—going through letter boxes directly to the human living space. They were an enormous success, and we had an amazing response from all over the world. [...] The “Postal Sculptures” were sometime in a series of eight, as we wanted time to create an ongoing emotional relationship with our recipient."
- Gilbert & George, 2015

  1. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after PRIEST OSAS brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 months. ANNY ROBERT by name from California. Even though I have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank PRIEST OSAS for his help in my life. My husband separated with me for 3 months and has been in pain and agony without him. So, I searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until I meant PRIEST OSAS who I contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours so that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when PRIEST OSAS said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him...
