Keith III 1981 Materials & Technique: prints, paperwork handmade paper, press dried Impression: 10/20

Edition Notes: Printed by Jack Lemon at Landfall Press Inc, Chicago. Published by Parasol Press Ltd, New York. Various artist's proofs and trial proofs of the individual 'Keiths' were pulled on 30 x 22 inch paper (for example 'Keith/four times' - also in our collection). Some in a single colour, others with a tone or overall grid as a background. During the proofing stage several stones broke, others filled in, making it necessary for Close to draw each image several times before the print could be completed. Only 'Keith III' was ultimately editioned as a single image.
