    Donated by Artist Proof Studio, Johannesburg.

    The series of individual linocut colour swatches produced in 2013 are meticulously cut linoleum relief prints that mimic calligraphic brush-strokes. The original multitude of ink-wash drawings by William Kentridge formed part of a body of visual research the artist was involved with at the time on colour theories. The gestural mark-making denies the traditional medium of linocut and becomes a visual language to describe different colours. The composite of Colour Chart II comprises individual colour swatches printed on handmade cotton/sisal paper with the text (names of each colour) screen-printed on the sheet under each swatch.
  • Dimensions: sheet size: 144 x 80.5 cm unframed
  • Artist Name: William Kentridge (South Africa 1955-)
  • Medium: 12 linocut reliefs mounted on sisal Phumani paper
  • Condition: The overall condition is very good.
