About

Esteemed American Artist Donald Sultan (b. 1951) emerged as a master of the New Image movement in the 1970's, producing elegant, minimalist imagery using industrial materials that were decidedly postminimal. Abstracted blooms are an iconic motif in his work. Black Flower part of the Flower Series, a 2008 quadriptych by Donald Sultan comes from a series of 4 aquatints each with a different color and titled as such: Black Flower, Blue Flower, Green Flower and Red Flower. The visual effect of the four together is quite impactful. The brilliant hues have a wonderful depth and play off each other beautifully. The coloration has a soft matte finish that accentuates the simplicity and elegance of the series wonderfully. These quintessential Sultan pieces are immediately recognizable as his work and will make a great addition to a thoughtful collection. Although Sultan's subject matter varies, his works share formal similarities of volume, texture and richness. Although primarily classified as still life, Sultan maintains that his works (despite their representational objects—flowers, lemons, eggs, buttons) are first and foremost abstract. His images are distinctively textured and equally balance the contrast of positive and negative space. Sultan’s work is held in many museum collections worldwide. Black Flower is from a limited edition of 50 aquatint etchings published by Polígrafa, Barcelona. The work is prominently signed and numbered in pencil by the artist. The image measures 31.5 x 28 inches and the paper size is 47 x 34.75 inches.
