27 Master Prints

New York: Harry N. Abrams, 1979. First Edition. Folio. (40cm.x29cm.) 63pp. Ills. Color illustrated cardstock wrappers. Near Fine. Item #230

Full page color reproductions of twenty-seven serigraph prints by artist, Will Barnett. These enigmatic and highly composed scenes are the product of decades of an artist moving from abstraction toward simplification. Barnett, an artist trained in oil painting, studied lithography at the Art Students League in the 1930s ultimately becoming the League's professional printer. As opposed to his work in oil, Barnett's experiments in printmaking lead him towards highly formal compositions. His subjects are often humans interacting agreeably with nature. Barnett was a master of color, his complex gradient colors and basic geometries promoted a calm, detached tone making him a favorite of poster collectors and graphic designers.
