[ translate ]

JOSEF ALBERS (1888-1976)

10TH NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL / LINCOLN CENTER. 1972.

50x26 inches, 127x66 cm. HKL Ltd., [Boston].
Condition A: minor creases at edges; hand-signed, dated and numbered 62/144 by the artist in pencil in bottom margin. Silkscreen. Paper.

When Lincoln Center first opened in 1962, philanthropist and art collector Vera List saw the appeal of posters created by prominent artists to promote upcoming events and went about recruiting such designers for their productions. She also established the Vera List Art Project, through which artist-designed prints could be sold on behalf of Lincoln Center. Beginning with Larry Rivers' 1963 poster design for the first Film Festival, the series has steadily maintained its connection with prominent artists including Andy Warhol, Saul Bass, Roy Lichtenstein, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg and many others - each of these Contemporary artists being free to design a poster in their own style.
