Lower left: Ellsworth Kelly (American, b. 1923), Melon Leaf (Axsom 44). Original lithograph, 1965-66. 75 signed & numbered impressions. The first of the post-war American artists to be widely shown in Europe, Kelly has had numerous retrospectives at museums in America and Europe, including the Museum of Modern Art (NY), the Pompidou (Paris), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (amoang many others too numerous to fit here). WE pirchased this work due to the testimony of Yoyo Maeght, Aimé Maeght's grand-daughter. She and I had been looking at works by Claudee Garache and Joan Gardy Artigas, bith of whom have created many images of women. At one point in our browsing, she took me to the back rooom where she showed me this work, the last impression unsold in their inventory, and she told me that this was the sexiest work of art she had ever seen. When a French woman makes a statement like that, the only possible course of action is to add it to the pile of works we were purchasing. Over the years, we have seen many nudes and many of Ellsworthe Kelly's leaf and flower drawings. I'm not yet convinced that her statemeent was incorrect! Image size: 905x625mm. Mat size: 42x30 inches. Price: $7500.

Painting with oil on clear plexiglas, printing, allowing the sheet to dry, then putting it under the plexyglas to serve as a visible base for the next layer of paint, together they produced a series of monotypes they named the Stoughton Series in honor of Wayne's Stoughton WI workshop.
