Untitled 015 (1959)
Mixed media on paper, 17" x 12"
Signed and dated "V. Wicht 59" lower right.
As one of a group of over 100 works personally selected by the artist and gifted to a close personal friend in 1969, this work was never matted, framed, glued, taped or exposed to light. Therefore, the sheets and pigments survive – a true rarity – in as close to "the day they were created" condition as possible. During the ownership of this collection by Caldwell Gallery, each work has remained archivally stored in our flat files, allowing purchasers to work directly with their preferred framers to select both aesthetic and archival strategies to allow enjoyment of these works for generations to come.
