Color field artist Gene Davis was know for these vibrant, punch works featuring brightly-colored stripes that explore the interplay between colors. The silkscreen prints offered here from Series 2 are unique because they are printed on canvas rather than paper, and this gives the works an especially strong and saturated feel.

Some wear at edges, including fraying to one corner; not examined out of frame.
