About

An original signed lithograph on Rives BFK paper by American artist/master printer Kenneth Tyler (1931-) titled "Reflection", 1964. Hand pencil signed lower right, titled lower center, and numbered lower left. Limited edition: 17/20. Printed in green-black, blue-green, blue, violet, yellow-grey, and transparent grey. Collaborating/Edition printing by Kenneth Tyler and published by Tamarind Lithography Workshop, Los Angeles, CA. Tamarind Lithography Workshop and Tyler blindstamps/chopmarks lower right next to signature. Inscribed "1074" on verso lower left; this is the catalogued Tamarind print number. Tyler, as an artist, created only 7 lithographs each in edition sizes of 10, 15, or 20 during his time at Tamarind Lithography Workshop between 1963-1965. Provenance: private collection - Los Angeles, CA. Sheet size: 20.25" x 13.25". In excellent condition. "Reflection" is an extremely rare, scarce print. A real museum piece. In 1963, Tyler received a Ford Foundation Grant to study printing at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles. This workshop, co-founded by June Wayne and Clinton Adams, was established in 1960 with the intention of reviving the ‘dying’ art of lithography. Here Tyler worked under technical director Irwin Hollander and also later studied under the French master printer Marcel Durassier. Durassier, who was noted for his technical skill, had worked at the French lithography workshop, Mourlot Frères, with some of the great artists of the School of Paris, including Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. Here Tyler acquired a broad technical skills base through research and practice, and from 1964-5 was appointed Technical Director of the Workshop. It was in this role that Tyler had his first major collaboration with Josef Albers, an artist who became, in Tyler’s words, "the catalyst of my career." Kenneth E. Tyler, AO (born December 13, 1931) is a master printer, publisher, arts educator and a prominent figure in the American post-war revival of fine art, limited edition printmaking. Tyler established leading print workshops and publishing houses on both West and East coasts of the United States and made several innovations in printmaking technology. His technical expertise and willingness to experiment on a bold scale drew many famous and influential artists to his workshops, among them Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler, Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney, Robert Rauschenberg, Anthony Caro and Jasper Johns. Ken Tyler remains active as an educator and promoter of fine art printmaking, and mentor of a younger generation of printers through his various training and collecting institutions in Singapore, Japan, Australia and the US. The largest collection of prints produced at Tyler's successive workshops is currently held by the National Gallery of Australia.
