Poster, Tuesdays by Design, 1993
This is a Poster. It was from the office of Watt, Roop & Co.. It is dated 1993 and we acquired it in 1995. Its medium is offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
In this poster, a series of dates is rendered in a manner that recalls studies in books by both Chevreul and Persoz exploring how colors “read” against different colored backgrounds. The green seems to pop forward against the red background, its true complement, while it recedes on the purple ground.
