Franz Kline explored color as form in the magnificent “Red Painting, 1961.” Perhaps best known for his black and white paintings, Kline (1910 – 1962) re-introduced color to his works in the mid-1950s. In “Red Painting, 1961,” one of his last paintings, he utilized strongly contrasting colors and broad, dynamic brushstrokes, creating a taut, cohesive composition. Red, overflowing with vibrancy, can be a challenging color choice, but KIine handled it with an expert’s touch. . “Red Painting” is displayed in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
This serigraph is an artisan print with a stunning paint-like vibrancy and viscosity. Also known as screen printing or silk screening, serigraphy is a printing process by which inks are forced through a mesh screen and applied to the surface of the print. The result is a brilliantly hued work of art that retains its beauty for a lifetime.
