Kind of Blue, by Arthur Secunda

  • signed: "Secunda" (lower right in image)
  • medium: serigraph hand-printed on 263 gram Mohawk Superfine paper by Jeff Davis at Gold Canyon, Arizona, consisting of five passes (first: flat black as a ground; second: three-color gradation blend of darkened cobalt blue to heightened lighter cobalt to red-brown; third: gradation blend from light ultramarine to darkened ultramarine; fourth: one flat off-register mars red; finally, saxes highlighted with a three-color blend made up of orange, white, and ochre).
