The Seasons Set (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) (ULAE 238-241)
The complete set of Four Jasper Johns signed and dated etchings with aquatint in colors, 1987, on Somerset Paper, each numbered from the regular edition, published by Universal Limited Art Editions, West Islip, New York, with their blindstamp, each with full margins. Each 26 x 19 inches.
The Jasper Johns Seasons Set of Four etchings with aquatint is exceptionally fresh and bright and in overall excellent condition. Each Jasper Johns Seasons - Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, was created to stand alone, but more desirable as the complete Seasons Set of Four.
The Jasper Johns Seasons Set of Four etchings with aquatint includes key symbols and icons created by the Artist such as the American Flag, the Mona Lisa, George Ohr Pottery, as well as the Artist's homage to Pablo Picasso's Shadow.
Jasper Johns, the most important living Post War and Contemporary Artist, established an all time Auction record in May 2010, when Flag sold for $28,642,500. In addition, Jasper Johns Seasons Set of Four etchings with aquatint was the highest priced lot at Christie's April 2010 Print auction.
