Jules Olitski

Crimson Orange with Blue, 1970
38.50 x 29.25 in
Jules Olitski is famous enough that I will not bother with posting a large amount of information here. He was not only a foremost American painter, but he was known as a master print-maker as well. This large, powerful print, professionally float-framed, is from an edition of only 150, absolutely spot-on for what he was doing in his prime. Signed and dated lower right.

It is very hard to shoot behind glass, so I have included two photos in different lights to give an indication of color values depending on lighting. The print itself is 34-1/2" x 25-1/2", framed 38-1/2" x 29-1/4".

Here's a relevant section taken from the Wikipedia entry for Olitski:

"By 1965 Olitski had evolved a radically innovative technique of laying down atmospheric blankets of colored spray on the canvas, marked at first by barely discernible straight-edged value changes near the edge of the picture and later by acrylic paint dragged along portions of the edge. He exhibited internationally in the late 1960s and was selected as one of four artists to represent the United States at the Venice Biennale in 1966. In 1969 he was invited to exhibit large, aluminum, spray-painted sculptures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art becoming the first living American artist to be given a one-person exhibition there."
