Donald Sultan Collectible 2008 Mimosas Mostly Mozart Festival Poster

$699

About

This is a special limited edition poster from the 2008 event at Lincoln Park that memorializes Donald Sultan's opus: "Mimosas." Donald Sultan's iconic mimosas are the subject of this beautiful list art limited edition poster from 2008. It is no exaggeration to say it is rare. Only 350 were made. I found this with a group of collectible and unique prints that I think are a great acquisition or a wonderful piece for a designer in a large space. Sultan is fixated on mimosas. This item had a bit of conservancy and is in excellent condition except for the frame, which is worn. This piece will be best served, re-framed. The poster is self-backed with the lightest thinnest foam, and the glass is specially treated to limit UV exposure. The print does not appear to have faded, nor the color diminished from light exposure. I learned how Sultan received a bouquet of the flowers when he was in the South of France, and that began his fascination with re-creating them in his art. His drawings and paintings of the flowers in various shades and with different mediums are inspiring, but perhaps none so much as this representation. A unique piece.

About the Retailer

Donald Sultan

Donald Sultan is a distinguished painter, sculptor, and printmaker who rose to prominence in the late 1970s as part of the “New Image” movement in New York City.

Sultan has a unique artistic method and innovative approach to traditional subject matter. Known as Abstract Representation, Sultan’s paintings, prints and other art are characterized by the use of geometric black forms set against organic areas of bright color, thus bringing an abstract sensibility to his iconographic images of still life. Throughout his career he has revisited and reinvented still life, using images of lemons, poppies, playing cards, fruits, flowers, and other objects. Sultan’s lemons, a recurrent theme in his artworks, have in fact become an iconic image all over the world.

“All of the images of those dark pictures are really about the architecture in the paintings; they seem so massive and strong and permanent, but nothing is permanent,” Sultan has said. “The image in the front is very fragile, but it conveys the loaded meaning of everything that is contained in the painting.”

Sultan is considered to be at the forefront of contemporary art. Although his paintings are often classified as landscapes and still lifes, Sultan states that they are first and foremost abstracts. Besides paintings, drawings, and sculptures, he has created many editions. Sultan’s prints are unique: he uses specific materials like “flocking” to create expressive and powerful prints that are reminiscent of his forceful paintings. Since his first solo exhibition in 1977, Sultan’s artistic career has progressed rapidly; his works are part of the most prominent public and private collections to be found across the globe.
