A First: Glaser’s Work to Appear at an Art Print Fair
It’s hard to believe, but Milton Glaser has never shown work at an art print fair—this despite the hundreds of prints and posters he’s created over his six-plus decade career.
As if to celebrate that “anniversary,” six new large-scale 54 x 72 inch prints on canvas pertaining to visual artists, a selection of original drawings related to musicians and approximately thirty 17 x 22 inch landscape prints, never previously exhibited, are being presented at the Fine Art Print Fair Oct. 26-29, 2017, at River Pavilion Javits Center, NYC, at Carl Solway Gallery / Booth 301.
Glaser has long been a prolific artist interested in using technology to expand the boundaries of drawing, printmaking and design. “The act of drawing provides the foundation for all of his work and digital technology is an important tool for augmenting its possibilities,” note the curators from Carl Solway Gallery, who are sponsoring this sale. For many years, Glaser has produced artwork reflecting his interest in the traditions of portraiture and landscape. His portraits depict a broad range of cultural figures, including Toulouse Lautrec, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Wassily Kandinsky, Sonia Delaunay, William Shakespeare and Bob Dylan.
