About the Item

Silkscreen serigraph Op art print. Luitpold Domberger (1912-2005 ) was a pioneer of artistic screen printing in Germany. Luitpold (Poldi) Domberger studied from 1928 at the art and trade school in Pforzheim, where he then worked as a freelance commercial artist before moving to Stuttgart in the mid-1930s. At the end of the 1940s he came into contact with the new medium of screen printing through a visit to an exhibition in the Amerikahaus in Stuttgart. He set up his first screen printing workshop in 1949 at Gänsheidestrasse 26 in Stuttgart. His neighbor there was the artist Willi Baumeister. The screen printer and the artist worked together, which resulted in almost 60 serigraphs being produced between 1950 and Baumeister's death in 1955. Inspired by the first exhibitions of the Baumeister screen prints, other artists soon also had Domberger print. In the years that followed, Domberger had a decisive influence on the newly emerging profession of the screen printer; Young printers like Hans-Peter Haas emerged from his workshop. At the end of the 1960s, Edition Domberger was founded at the new printing site in Plattenhardt near Stuttgart, and it still exists today under the management of his son, the screen printer Michael Domberger. From the 1950s onwards Domberger created serigraphs for many internationally known artists, including Max Ackermann , Josef Albers , Keith haring, Cy Twombly, Max Bill , Richard Estes , Adolf Fleischmann , Otto Herbert Hajek , Richard Hamilton , Robert Indiana , Nicholas Krushenick , Roy Lichtenstein , Georg Karl Pfahler , Victor Vasarely and Ben Willikens. From Pop art and Op art to Minimalism, Photorealism and Conceptual art. They have a long history of working with women artists, among them German conceptualist Hanne Darboven and Anni Albers. They also had an instinct for cool Op artists, and, in particular, the hard-edge color-field painters of the 1960s. Prints from Domberger can now be found all over the world at trade fairs, in the art trade and in many graphics auctions and collections.

  • Agam Silkscreen Mod Judaica Lithograph Hand Signed Israeli Kinetic Op Art Print
    By Yaacov Agam
    Located in Surfside, FL
    Yaacov Agam Israeli (b. 1928) Hand signed, not individually numbered but from edition of 180. I can include a copy of the title sheet with the edition size and his signature if you request. sheet: 13.5 X 13.5 inches Some of these works have beautiful Hebrew calligraphy and mod imagery, animals, children and such that are not usually found in his work. This is a masterpiece of bold, graphic, mod design. Along with Reuven Rubin and Menashe Kadishman he is among Israel's best known artists internationally. Biographical info: The son of a rabbi, Yaacov Agam can trace his ancestry back six generations to the founder of the Chabad movement in Judaism. in 1946, he entered the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Studying with Mordecai Ardon, a former student at the Weimar Bauhaus. Yaakov Agam has been associated h with “abstract” artists, “hard edge” artists, and artists such as Josef Albers and Max Bill. Others find in Agam’s work an indebtedness to the masters of the Bauhaus. Agam’s approach to art, being conceptual in nature, has been likened to Marcel Duchamp’s, who expressed the need to put art “at the service of the spirit.” And, because of Agam’s employment of color and motion in his art, he has been compared to Alexander Calder, the artist who put sculpture into motion. (Motion is not an end, but a means for Agam. Calder’s mobiles are structures that are fixed, revolving at the whim of the wind. In a work by Agam, the viewer must intervene.) Agam has also been classified as an “op art” artist because he excels in playing with our visual sensitivities. Agam went to Zurich to study with Johannes Itten at the Kunstgewerbeschule. There, he met Frank Lloyd Wright and Siegfried Giedion, whose ideas on the element of time in art and architecture impressed him. In 1955, Galerie Denise René hosted a major group exhibition in connection with Vasarely's painting experiments with movement. in addition to art by Vasarely, it included works by Yaacov Agam, Pol Bury, Soto and Jean Tinguely, among others. Most Americans were first introduced to Vasarely by the groundbreaking exhibition, "The Responsive Eye," at New York's Museum of Modern Art in 1965. Josef Albers, Richard Anuszkiewicz. The show confirmed Vasarely's international reputation as the father of Op art. Agam has sought to express his ideas in a non-static form of art. In his abstract Kinetic works, which range from paintings and graphics to sculptural installations and building facades. Agam continually seeks to explore new possibilities in form and color and to involve the viewer in all aspects of the artistic process. Thus, for the past 40 years, Yaacov Agam’s pioneering ideas have impacted developments in art, (painting, monoprint, lithograph and agamograph) architecture, theatre, and public sculpture. Reflecting both his Israeli Jewish...
