"The Blue Kiss" by Karel Appel, 1975, Silkscreen & Foil


Dutch artist Karel Appel (1921-2006) was known for his use of child-like lines and bold, primary colors across multiple mediums. Here we see this abstract simplicity in the image of lovers kissing. The vibrant red and blue pop against the metallic silver tones; the slight wrinkling in the foil adding a unique texture to the print. Appel was part of the CoBrA (Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam) group of artists, who were dedicated to using raw forms and bold colors in response to academic modernism. This silkscreen on foil is mounted to board, is signed and numbered in pencil, dedicated proof. It is offered unframed.
