Signed Limited First Edition of Derrière Le Miroir No. 149: Ellsworth Kelly


“I think what we all want from art is a sense of fixity, a sense of opposing the chaos of daily living. This is an illusion, of course. What I’ve tried to capture is the reality of flux, to keep art an open, incomplete situation, to get at the rapture of seeing.” - Ellsworth Kelly Signed Limited First Edition, number 9 of only 150 deluxe copies printed on Velin de Rives and Signed by renowned American abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly. Complete with five striking lithographs by Kelly, including two single page in color, two double page (one in color and one in black-and-white), and the lithographic wrapper. Nine additional reproductions plus a photograph of artist also included. With text (printed in both English and French) by Dale McConathy. Note: The limited edition is of vastly superior quality than the corresponding trade issue of Derrière Le Miroir. Published in conjunction with the opening of the November 1964 exhibition at the Maeght gallery, which featured 13 paintings and two sculptures by Ellsworth Kelly. Paris: Maeght Editeur, 1964.  Folio, (38x28 cm) lithographed wrappers; original board chemise and slipcase. Loose as issued. Signed in pencil by Kelly and numbered 9 on the justification page. A few stray smudges to slipcase. A fine copy: outstanding impressions with vibrant colors and bold geometry. Rare.
