After a successful debut last year, Lyndsey Ingram returns to Art Miami in 2017 with a booth that focuses on the importance of colour in printmaking. Recognised as one of the leading international print dealers, the gallery specialises in British and American printmaking from the second half of the twentieth century to today.
A highlight of her booth this year is a special collection of works by Wayne Thiebaud (b.1920) direct from the artist’s studio, presenting key periods in his career. Exceptionally fresh and never before framed, these are all artist’s proofs. They include rare colour variants of Hill Street, one of his monumental landscape paintings, as well as examples from all his key subjects, from cake to candy.
These high quality, iconic Thiebaud images range from early etchings to more recent works, including several works from his early Delights portfolio. The artist has explored many forms of printmaking throughout his career– screenprint, woodcut, linocut and etching, and this rare group of prints represents the virtuoso scope of Thiebaud’s printmaking.
Lyndsey Ingram is also offering important works by David Hockney, Frank Stella, Peter Doig and Gerald Laing. Each of these artists viewed printmaking as an integral part of their artistic practice and used colour in creative ways in their prints.
