This stunning 1964 Ellsworth Kelly was the first screenprint published by Ellsworth Kelly and is in remarkable condition. The colors are particularly fresh, the paper is bright white, just like it was when it was originally published.
We recently had this extraordinary and desirable 1964 Ellsworth Kelly Red/Blue Screenprint placed in an archival White Wood Frame after having been carefully stored since it was published over four decades ago.
A superb, rich example by this International Artist who has had a major Career Retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
