About

Fugue is an original hand drawn limited edition lithograph by the African American artist Hughie lee-Smith printed using hand lithography techniques on archival Arches paper, 100% acid free. Edition of 175. Fugue incorporates Lee-Smith's signature elements of lone figures in a stage-like setting, colored balloons, two musicians, two girls running forward, colorful blue background and multicolored collaged details. Print size - 26 x 36 inches, unframed Image size - 20 x 31 inches Edition size - 175 Year published - 1995 Artist statement by Hughie Lee-Smith - 23 February 1995 Fugue can be viewed at least from two perspectives. It can be seen as an allusion to music, in which the two horns are in contrapuntal relationship. And, on the left side of the diptych, the two fleeing figures are representative of the (psychiatric) fugue state in which a subject in a state of amnesia experiences a temporary flight from reality.
