This is a fine art lithograph. It’s an original work of fine art which was produced at the prestigious S2 Atelier in New York City in 1997. It was inspired by a poster first created in 1931.These fine art lithographs are recreations of the original. Great care was taken to precisely re-create the artists original image. Most of the chromists hand draw directly onto specially prepared surfaces that are then transferred onto lithographic plates. Lithography involves creating hand drawn plates, one for each color, which are then ‘pulled’ through antique printing presses one color at a time. The resulting lithograph is in pure color, as opposed to the dot structure which occurs in the photographic process of modern printing. At the heart of the S2 Atelier are it’s two rare, French made Marinoni Voirin ‘editioning’ printing presses ‘ they both date back to the mid 19th century. These are the best fine art lithographs made in the industry today. You cannot find anything better than these. Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is arguably America’s most famous and influential architect. This poster was designed in 1931 by Hendrikus T. Wijdeveld (1885-1987) for the Amsterdam showing of a traveling exhibition of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work, which toured the U.S. and Europe in 1930-31. This typographical construction illustrates a style of type called Wendingen and helped bring Frank Lloyd Wright’s work to the attention of the European public. Wijdeveld was a master of the constructivist school, his particular specialty being angular lettering which he designed separately for each poster, and which he could weave into intriguing patterns that virtually mesmerize us when we read them.
