New York. 1968. - Portfolio set of 10 lithographs. Individually framed, accompanied by the original folding box. From an edition of 250, one of 230 signed. Fine. When Georgia O'Keeffe created the original drawing published in this limited edition print portfolio, she was still an unknown artist. The drawings, begun in 1915, are considered by art historians to be among the earliest and most individual manifestations of abstraction in American modern art. In 1968, O'Keeffe personally selected ten of her drawings - those that she though represented the range and variety of her work - for this project. Chip Benson, a MacArthur Prize-winning artist and a former Dean of the Yale School of Art, worked with Doris Bry, the leading authority on O'Keeffe's art, to create the prints. The lithographs were then published by Atlantis Editions, the imprint founded by Bry, and was the first of many collaborative projects undertaken by the pair. The ten drawings were printed in 300-line screen offset lithography; nine of the plates were made in black and white, and "Blue Lines" was printed in a striking blue. Two hundred thirty copies were numbered and signed by O'Keeffe herself. In the original folding box is also included a booklet with an introduction by art historian Lloyd Goodrich. The works exemplify O'Keeffe's use of undulating, spiral motifs, with swirling and delicate forms that draw in the eye and create dynamic compositions.
