Robert Indiana
The Calumet

1997

About the Item

An original screenprint on Coventry paper by American artist Robert Indiana (1928-2018) titled "The Calumet", 1997. Issued unsigned. Limited edition: 395. (There were also 30 artist's proofs). Comes from Indiana's 1997 "The American Dream" book portfolio of 30 screenprints. Printed in 3 colors. Printed and published by Marco Fine Arts Contemporary Atelier, El Segundo, CA. Provenance: private collection - Düsseldorf, Germany. Text on verso of the following work as issued. Sheet size: 22" x 16.75". Image size: 15.07" x 14". In excellent condition. Notes: Robert Indiana's 1997 black leather-covered book portfolio "The American Dream" was printed and published with 30 screenprints: 6 loose each signed and numbered and 24 bound not signed and numbered, as issued. Forward by Susan Ryan, text by Michael McKenzie and poems by Robert Creeley. The book was issued within a white cardboard packing box with red and black lettering. This image is based of Indiana's 1971 screenprint edition "The Calumet", (Sheehan No. 64, page 43), from his 1971 "Decade" series, (Sheehan No. 63-72, page 42-44). The prints in that portfolio reproduce one of Indiana's paintings from each year of the 1960's. The bear they same titles as the corresponding paintings. "The Calumet" is a 1961, 90" x 84", oil on canvas painting which is within the permanent collection of the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA. "The Calumet", derived from Longfellow's "Song of Hiawatha", reflects Indiana's ongoing involvement with American literary associations and sources. As interpreted, by Indiana, the schematized image of the red clay peace-pipe smoked by the Indians in Longfellow's poem symbolizes mankind's potential to eradicate war. - (Sheehan page 9). Seven stars for seven spheres, revolving like ball bearings in a universe of imagined planets intertwined by an artist's imagination. This is American Indian Indiana style, a geometry more perfect than a Choctaw blanket. Like many Indiana paintings, this work has a poetic reference - the outer rim is a line from the poem "Hiawatha" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Robert Indiana was born on September 13, 1928 named Robert Clark in New Castle, Indiana, and was adopted as an infant by Earl Clark and Carmen Watters. After his parents divorced, he relocated to Indianapolis to live with his father so he could attend Arsenal Technical High School (1942–1946), from which he graduated as valedictorian of his class. After serving for three years in the United States Army Air Forces, Indiana studied at the Art Institute of Chicago (1949–1953), the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine (summer 1953) and Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art (1953–1954). He returned to the United States in 1954 and settled in New York City. In New York, Indiana's lover Ellsworth Kelly, whom he met in 1956, helped him find a loft on Coenties Slip. On Coenties Slip he met neighboring artists like Jack Youngerman, Agnes Martin and Cy Twombly, with whom he shared his studio for a time. Indiana's career took off in the early 1960s after Alfred H. Barr, Jr., bought The American Dream, 1 for the Museum of Modern Art. In 1964, Indiana moved from Coenties Slip to a five-story building at Spring Street and the Bowery. In 1969, he began renting the upstairs of the mansarded Victorian-style Odd Fellows Hall named "The Star of Hope" in the island town of Vinalhaven, Maine, as a seasonal studio from the photographer Eliot Elisofon. Half a century earlier, Marsden Hartley had made his escape to the same island. When Elisofon died in 1973, Indiana bought the lodge for $10,000 from his estate. He moved in full-time when he lost his lease on the Bowery in 1978. Indiana grew reclusive in his final years. He died on May 19, 2018, at his home in Vinalhaven, Maine, of respiratory failure at the age of 89. One day before his death, a lawsuit was filed over claims that his caretaker had isolated him from family and friends, and was marketing unauthorized reproductions of his works.

  • Entablature IV
    By Roy Lichtenstein
    Located in Saint Augustine, FL
    An original signed screenprint and collaged mat pink metallic foil with embossing on Rives BFK paper by American artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) titled "Entablature IV", 1976. Hand pencil signed by Lichtenstein lower right and numbered lower left. Limited edition: 14/30. (There were also 9 artist's proofs). Comes from Lichtenstein's 1976 "Entablature Series" portfolio of 11 prints, (Corlett No. 138-148). Printed in 6 colors, in 7 runs, from 5 screens, and 1 embossing plate. Printed and published by Tyler Graphics Ltd., Bedford Village, NY. Collaboration: Kenneth Tyler (project supervision, plate/screen preparation, proofing, collage, and embossing); Kim Halliday (screen preparation and processing, proofing, and edition printing); Betty Fiske (proofing and edition printing). Swan Engraving processed the magnesium plate. Tyler Graphics Ltd. chop mark/blind stamp lower right. Workshop number on verso in pencil lower left: "RL75-197". Reference: "The Prints of Roy Lichtenstein: A Catalogue Raisonne 1948-1997" - Corlett No. 141, page 144; PCN 7 (July-August 1976); "Tyler Graphics Catalogue Raisonne, 1974-1985" - Tyler No. 337:RL5, page 210. Provenance: private company collection - Miami, FL, acquired directly from the publisher Tyler Graphics Ltd. in the 1970's. Framed in a contemporary white moulding with plexiglass, and matted with a custom hand-wrapped 8 ply linen mat. Framed size: 39.5" x 55". Sheet size: 29.19" x 44.82". Image size: 20.19" x 38". Comes with its original Tyler Graphics "Entablature Series" booklet. Some light cosmetic wear to frame; presently no hanging wire. The artwork itself is in excellent condition. Very rare. Between 1971 and 1976 Lichtenstein produced two series of "Entablature" paintings, using photographs of architectural ornament he had taken in New York as the starting point for his compositions (see Cowart [1981]). The first "Entablature" paintings (1971-72) were black and white. The second group used color and were produced at roughly the same time the "Entablature" series of prints were in production at Tyler Graphics Ltd., 1974-76. The first discussions between Lichtenstein and Ken Tyler concerning the "Entablature" prints took place in May, 1974. As recorded in the Tyler catalogue raisonne, technical research for the project began in September 1974 and production was completed in April 1976. Lichtenstein produced one or more collages for each print in the series to serve as models for the plates and screens. Both the "Entablature" paintings and prints are intimately concerned with texture - the metallic paint and sand of the paintings, the foils and embossing/debossing techniques employed in the prints. The imagery itself - machined architectural ornament - takes technology as its subject. As Barbara Rose suggests, "That industrialism disrupted our notion of style as much as reproduction altered our conception of representation appears to be the subjects of Lichtenstein's "Entablatures". For each print in this series, the Tyler Graphics Ltd. catalogue raisonne gives exact method and press types, as well as the initials of the printers for each run. To complete certain phases of the project, Tyler employed the following companies: Drake Engineering, Danbury, CT (for machining of the metal die); Swan Engraving, Bridgeport, CT (for plate processing); Tallix Foundry, Beacon, NY (for bronze casting); and Tompkins Tooling, Gardena, CA (for machining of the metal die). The ten embossing plates for the series are now in the collection of the National Gallery, Canberra, Australia. American artist Roy Lichtenstein was born in New York City on October 27, 1923, and grew up on Manhattan's Upper West Side. In the 1960s, Lichtenstein became a leading figure of the new Pop Art movement. Inspired by advertisements and comic strips, Lichtenstein's bright, graphic works parodied American popular culture and the art world itself. He died in New York City on September 29, 1997. Lichtenstein was committed to his art until the end of his life, often spending at least 10 hours a day in his studio. His work was acquired by major museum collections around the world, and he received numerous honorary degrees and awards, including the National Medal of Arts in 1995. In 2013 the painting "Woman with Flowered Hat" set another record at $56.1 million as it was purchased by British jeweler Laurence Graff from American investor Ronald O. Perelman. This was topped in November of 2015 by the sale of "Nurse" for 95.4 million dollars at Christie's auction. Subsequently, that was topped with the private sale of his 1962 painting...

  • Ink, Pigment on paper - Firefly Dream (2000)
    By Wu Lan-Chiann
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    This is a beautiful contemporary Chinese ink painting by Wu Lan-Chiann. This piece uses a very masterful, precise yet delicate style of the Chinese ink technique known as "gong bi", as well as expressive style. The quality of brush strokes is tremendously important and has to be strong and controlled, yet dynamic, fluid and delicate. You can see the fine detail of the embroidery on the blanket and pillowcase, as well the luminous light from the fireflies evoking a serenity and poetic beauty. The thematic use of light in her various paintings: pure unpainted nothingness on the paper fading into color, glimmers of color symbolizing light, and various recurring use of light - are metaphors for human resilience, and for the artist, "creates a sense of warmth and safety, the strength and hope within." "Before the Storm" a painting by Ms Wu, was published on “Six Asian American Artists: Our Own Words - Powerful images and quotes from contemporary Asian Pacific American artists" in the collection of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Ink, pigment on paper Signed by artist, with one seal 31 x 27 in. (79 x 68.5 cm) Subject to availability Inquire about availability of other paintings. Buyer protection provided by 1stdibs. In 2010, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, curated an exhibition "Fresh Ink" that explored the landscape of contemporary Chinese ink paintings. Christie's and Sotheby's soon held private sales in recognition of this movement of what is essentially an ancient Chinese ink method, explored in new ways by its artists. One of the artists presented in Christie's Chinese ink events is Wu Lan-Chiann, a rare female painter recognized in the Chinese ink and brush method. One of her leaves ink paintings was added to the permanent collection of Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, a museum renowned for its extensive Asian art holdings.

"Before the Storm" a painting by Ms Wu, was published on “Six Asian American Artists: Our Own Words - Powerful images and quotes from contemporary Asian Pacific American artists" in the collection of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Buyer protection provided by 1stdibs. ABOUT THIS PIECE: Study of Dancing with the Wind Pencil on paper 14 x 17 in. (35.6 x 43.2 cm.) 2020 Sold framed, custom made in Los Angeles using archival materials. 1stdibs and gallery buyer's protection. Artist's statement with regards to the philosophy of the artist's Leaves paintings, of which this pencil drawing is part of: "My series of leaves paintings are created with ink and metal leaf (Palladium or Gold) on hand-made paper. In these works, I want to create powerful images showing leaves and dust flying around and up in the air. I use ink and color to paint the leaves, and palladium or gold flakes for the dust, which add to the energy in the painting. Depending on the viewing angle, the metal flakes appear either as shimmering speckles or splashes of ink. One painting in this series, Before the Storm(2015), was recently collected by the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. In my view, each leaf has its own cycle, has its unique shape and intensity, and has its own path through the air and will touch the earth in its own way. The leaves represent human beings, and each has different path in life; upbringing, life experience and destiny. I paint some leaves clear and some vague; other are rendered complete and yet others damaged. Some have a clear direction, but others are hurt and lost; some lives are peaceful and others are turbulent, all captured in these paintings."

    Robert Indiana Peace Plunges in Despair, 2004 Silkscreen on Somerset Velvet Paper 35 × 35 inches Editions AP 9/12 aside from the regular edition of 50 Pencil signed and numbered A.P. 9/12 on the front Unframed This scarce and poignant 2004 silkscreen was based upon the eponymous 2003 Robert Indiana painting exhibited at Kasmin Gallery in New York City. Here is an excerpt from a May, 2004 review of this show: ..."Mr. Indiana's new paintings address a theme that has been much on people's minds since Sept. 11, 2001: peace, or rather the absence of peace. Each diamond-shaped canvas features a circle, like a life-saver, bearing block-lettered sentences about the loss of peace: ''Peace falls in terror,'' ''Peace dives in oblivion,'' ''Peace plunges in despair.'' Within each circle is the familiar forked peace sign. The paintings also look like traffic signs. The combination of the high-contrast colors, sharp edges and centered, mandalalike compositions packs significant visual punch, while echoes of Mondrian and the hard-edged geometric painting of the 1960's add art historical resonance. The sentiments expressed may seem at first too general to be very affecting, but the way these pictures recall the Vietnam era politically as well as stylistically is evocative. They should be reproduced as posters and disseminated around the nation..."KEN JOHNSON .

  • Hope Wall
    By Robert Indiana
    Located in New York, NY
    ROBERT INDIANA Silkscreen on wove paper 24 × 25 inches Edition IV/IV (aside from the regular edition of 33) Hand signed, numbered and dated on lower front Unframed Robert Indiana created Hope Wall, or Wall of Hope in support of future president Barack Obama in 2008, and the print was published in 2010. This is an extremely rare Artist's Proof - one of only four in the world. It is pencil signed, dated and numbered IV of IV on the recto. The regular edition is only 33. Extremely scarce. This print has appeared on the market fewer than a handful of times over the past decade. “I’d like to cover the world with hope,” said Robert Indiana, the artist whose iconic “LOVE” series became a global symbol of unity during the turmoil of the 1960s. In 2008, Indiana felt the world was ready for a new message, and designed “HOPE” for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. “I wanted to help name and empower the next generation and I felt that HOPE encompassed the needs of our time,” he said. With its forward-leaning O, “HOPE” symbolizes perseverance, and pushing ahead toward a brighter future. To coincide with the artist’s 86th birthday, the first annual “International Hope Day” launched on September 13, 2014 and included the public display of Indiana’s “HOPE” sculptures...
