About

THE WAVE, c.1977, large watercolor on heavy paper, signed and dated lower right and inscribed 7/9 lower left, (this is an original watercolor painting, not a lithograph) Provenance: Gump's Gallery, San Francisco Ed Baynard (AMERICAN, 1940) Born in Washington, D.C. in 1940. Raised in Washington, D.C. and newly graduated from high school, he flew to Europe living off and on in Paris and London. During this time, he designed costumes for Jimi Hendrix, worked for the Beatles as well as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Returning to New York, he dedicated his life to art after a surprise success with his first show in 1971 at the Willard Gallery in NYC. Ed's images are Zen-like in their simplicity and grace. His watercolors are luminous, like the rest of his representations regardless of the medium. The Japanese inspired ukiyo-e style woodblock prints he created at Tyler Graphics in 1980 contain a 20th century "floating world" sensibility. Ed's wish was to bring harmony, color, and a meditative stillness to this chaotic planet. He did so in a gentle and powerful way, always as an expression of his deep gratitude for the love and beauty, friendship, and concerns he held dearest. His first exhibition was in 1971 at the legendary Willard Gallery. Baynard manages to retain a simplicity of form inspired by a love of Japanese Woodblock prints. His new works reflect the same poetry of his earlier paintings, retaining his stylized compositions and their Oriental calm, along with a new sense of rhythm and movement. Baynard uses familiar themes such as flowers, plants, pots, and vases, incorporating them into his delicate watercolor still lifes, thus creating stunning visual feasts.His work is held in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, Tate Galleries, London, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Walker Art Center, Addison Gallery of American Art, The High Museum, The Center for Contemporary Graphic Art (Fukushima,Japan), Wadsworth Atheneum, Australian National Gallery, The National Gallery and The Victoria and Albert among others.
