N.p., 1978–1979. Item #2929

Albert M. Fine [1932–1987] was a Julliard trained composer, conductor, musician, artist, and poet. His interdisciplinary approach and deep interest in the avant-garde brought him into contact with such artists as Ray Johnson, John Cage, Philip Glass, and George Maciunas. In his memoir, Words Without Music, Philip Glass provides an astonishing account of his time with Albert M. Fine and describes him as “the most influential musician whom I met at Julliard.” He gradually stopped working in music and is perhaps best remembered for his work in the contexts of Fluxus and Mail Art.


We are pleased to offer a striking collection of 23 unique works by this most curious and compelling figure. The pieces incorporate pen, ink and pencil drawing, rubberstamps, typewriting, and found objects. They were all created in 1978–1979. The works have been mailed (the vast majority to a single recipient) and the envelopes frequently become works of art in and of themselves. Two pieces are framed. Among the materials are two poems titled: “Stendahl, de Stael, and Stars,” and “PAGODA HILL.” Other pieces are (or at least appear) untitled. Cards range in size from 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 in. – 5 x 7 in. The poems are 8 1/2 x 11 in. folded twice for mailing. All signed and dated by the artist. All in near fine or better condition.
