The poster for Sven Lukin's solo exhibition at the Martha Jackson Gallery, New York from May 29-June 22, 1962, with his name printed in green/gold letters (outlined in black) and against a black background. Due to the darkness of the letters and the background, the poster image is difficult to reproduce - the black background printing is actualy consistent overall, and not lighter in the middle as it appears in the item image.
The Latvian born Lukin arrived in New York in 1958, and was one of five painters included in "The Shaped Canvas" exhibit at the Guggenheim museum in 1964. His work in the '60s was a hybrid of painting and sculpture with a minimalist aesthetic, yet usually in brillant color combinations of teal, yellow, green, orange or pink. His works are included in the collections of MoMA New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim, The Whitney, LACMA and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among others. Item #593.
Condition: Very Good, folded as issued; some additional soft creases at top and bottom middle folds, as well a speck of loss to black printing at top middle fold; a few common printer's blemishes when printing in heavy black, which appear as tiny round white spots on the black background.
