Norio Azuma
The Orb of Day

$1,600

About

A fine rare midcentury artist’s proof abstract color serigraph by Japanese artist Norio Azuma (1928-2004). Azuma was born in Mie-Ken, Japan and studied art while a youth in his native Japan. After emigrating at some point (it's unknown exactly when) to the United States, Azuma then continued his art studies at the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, CA and then at the Art Student's League in New York City. Azuma worked as a printmaker, experimenting with creating serigraphs on canvas rather than paper, then a relatively new development for Modernist practitioners of the craft and in the evolution of printmaking. What makes Norio Azuma's period Modernist vintage color serigraphs unlike other silkscreen fine art prints, is his use of fine linen or finely woven canvas as a printing surface, rather than artist paper, as was used by most other printmakers, which helped make him well known world-wide. Artist’s proof color serigraph on linen or fine canvas, laid down on paper, pencil signed and titled across the base “Artist’s Proof, The Orb of Day, Norio Azuma”, matted and framed under glass in a polished chrome modernist frame. Circa 1950's-60's. Very good overall condition, with minimal imperfections and minor moisture stains on verso. Dimensions: 14.5 in H x 18.5 in W, actual; 19.75 in H x 23.75 in W, framed.
