Set Design Art, George Factor, House of Cards, Vintage Watercolor, 1962


George Factor
House of Cards (Stage Set Design)
American: 1962
Gouache on board
Signed lower left “FACTOR ‘62”
15.5 x 20 inches

Original stage set design featuring four towers with a striking geometric design of playing card motifs. Gold flag poles held by chains lean from the top, suggesting castle towers or the pageantry of a royal court. This was possibly a modernist design for a production based on Alice in Wonderland, in which Alice encounters the Queen of Hearts and her playing-card courtiers.

Condition: Generally good with the usual expected light wear, soiling, toning. Horizontal tape residue in top and bottom margins, approximately 4 x ¾ inch, and faint mat burn, can be matted out when reframed.
