Out of curiousity, I emailed Judith Holland to see what info she had about the "Pearl of Wisdom" and "Treasure Within" prints and to see if she'd print them again.

How surprised I was that she responded:

Lisa,
I am sorry it has taken me so long to write back. I have been out of the
country and am just getting over jet lag.
I am sorry to say that it would be VERY expensive to reprint "The Pearl". I
checked it out in 2001 when others asked. It would cost me $1000. to get 10
prints in the new giclee printing and $5000. for 500 prints like the ones
to which you refer. On top of that it would cost more just to have the
company look for the file copy print. In order for it to be worth my while
I would have to double the price and be assured of selling what I have
printed.
I thought it to be an expensive venture in 2001 and it may have gone up by
now.
I am curios about "The Treasure Within". I haven't heard that title for
many years. Refresh me. I don't think I even have a copy of that one.
Best regards,
Judith Holland


So I sent her the picture of Treasure Within that was posted here.

Lisa ,
Thank you.
I didn't know that this was the title of this one. I thought it was "The
Fire god". Did I tell you that there was a third one called "Drums in the
Night". It had a green background.
i have talked to my friends that own the gallery that holds most of
August's paintings and they are with me in that I shouldn't print anymore.
Thanks again,
Judith

Does anyone know or have a picture of this print?

Nice work!
Too bad she couldn't send you a pic of "Drums". I'm still looking for "Treasure/Fire", now I guess I'm looking for an unknown green print that may or may not have a drum in it as well.

It doesn't sound like she's interested, but maybe someone like Tikifarm could schmooze her into a licensing deal. I'd love to have a matched set. But none of this limited edition-can't-afford-it-anyway-$$$ stuff.

Has anyone seen the 3rd print? I wanna see!

Or is this an elaborate hoax to humble those of us that are lucky enough to own the 2 familiar ones? I'm gonna freak until I get my hands on that third one....!

My thoughts exactly! Holden?

Here's the pic of "Treasure Within" / "Fire God" that Al posted in another thread.



You gotta wonder though, it the third print really exists, wouldn't BK have a stack of them already?

I am guesing this is the third Holland print:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=3749264106&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT

I saw this and that it might be, did some digging, and figured it had to be the third one. Drums, is it? Hope the link works, someone should get a capture of the pic. It's been a long time since I used this BBcode or I'd do it myself.

Ebay #3749264106 Sorry, it ends in just a day. There's till time for all interested in Holland' stuff.

I think you're right, Midnight.

I've saved the photos so that we can enjoy them long after the auction closes:

I found a picture of August Holland's Drums of the Night print on the augustholland.com website - since the one from before is gone, here it is again.

Ah - if I could depict otherworldly realms like August Holland I'd be immortal. As it is I can only aspire.

Great series of prints...

For the record I talked with the company that still owns the image of the Pearls of Wisdom. They were willing to reproduce that image as a smaller reprint... nice paper, etc... but I thought it was a bit pricey at what would be about $50- each print. Especially since they still pop up in thrift stores and online.

If there is enough interest here I can pick up that conversation with them again.

Thanks for the info Blowfish. I'd happily pay $50 for a brand new one with the colors all crisp & fresh.
