Chwast's Groucho

Seymour Chwast is a superb graphic designer and a founder of Push Pin Studios. His limited edition serigraph of comedian Groucho Marx from the 1980's recently sold on eBay is new to me. Groucho's features are simplified into geometric shapes. Sharp angles are set against wavy diagonal lines at the top and straight diagonals at the bottom. I like the way Groucho's name is formed from his cigar smoke.
