The master printmaker and artist, Steven Anderson, created our beautiful contemporary photo-lithographs. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Rockefeller Fellowship. He has also collaborated with over 100 artists including Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe & William Wegman. His prints have been exhibited in over 2,000 exhibits including The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney, The National Gallery, The MET, MOCA & LACMA.
For this project using Edward Curtis’ original glass plate negative as the source, and a secret, proprietary planographic process, which utilizes a variable range, multi-plate black and tone color technique. Each print required six separate impressions comprising four blacks, a tone color, and a select varnish application. The inks were manufactured especially for this project in France, utilizing ancient formulas reserved for a very select group of master printmakers. The acid-free, heavy weight woven mould made paper was custom produced for this specific project in England.
Each oversize print measures approximately 21” x 27″ and is hand-embossed with a facsimile of Curtis’s signature. Each print is numbered on the lower left corner margin, directly below the image.
