Print, League of Women Voters, 1969

This is a Print. It is dated 1969 and we acquired it in 1999. Its medium is screenprint on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

A clear understanding of optical effects characterizes the work of Richard Anuszkiewicz, a student of Josef Albers. In this design, each block of yellow, orange, or red is bordered with pale blue, green, or deep yellow, giving the illusion of a continuous gradation from cool and light in the upper left corner to warm and saturated in the lower right.

It is credited Gift of Joshua Mack.
