ADAA The Art Show
March 1, 2017 - March 5, 2017
Art Fairs

Pace Prints is pleased to present a selection of modern and contemporary master prints and African art in booth A8 at the ADAA The Art Show. The fair will be open to the public March 1-5, 2017 at the Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue, New York, NY.

Highlights of booth A8 include a rare group of bold black and white portraits by Henri Matisse created at the end of the artist’s life. These radiant aquatints, drawn with a brush directly on the copper plate, are elegant and simple yet exquisitely subtle in their placement on the sheet. Also on view are two color linocut portraits of Picasso’s wife and muse, Jacqueline, which exemplify the artist’s superb mastery of the medium.

Several technically innovative silkscreens by Jasper Johns from the 1970s feature the artist’s use of grids and repetitive crosshatching to create subtle gradations of color and a collage-like layered effect. The prints are entitled Usuyuki, a Japanese term meaning light snow.

Also on view are a set of four color lithographs by Willem de Kooning, created in 1986, which reflect the artist’s late work on canvas; Frank Stella’s Purple Series, 1972, nine color lithographs relating to the artist’s early stripe paintings; complete sets of etchings by Robert Mangold and lithographs by Agnes Martin.

Among the masterpieces of African Art is the Lega Stool, a ceremonial stool that was never used as a seat, but rather was displayed as a symbol of authority during Lega festivals. In many Congolese societies, stools represent the seat of power and ancestral figures.

An unusual Tabwa Figure, previously in the collection of Arman, arrived in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. It belongs to a small corpus of objects that represent ancestral lineage or most likely a nobleman carried by a slave.
