Jules Olitski (1922-1977) is one of Caviar20's favorite abstract artists of the 20th century.  Over the course of his career his aesthetic evolves in startling and fascinating ways.  

In the late 1980's Olitski embarked on a new chapter of art-making. Like in previous eras, embracing an unconventional tool led to a distinct and defining aesthetic. In the late 1960's using a spray gun led to his spray paintings...similarly at the end of the 80's Olitski embraced the painter's kit - typically used by household painters for affects using plaster on walls. 

His work from the late 1980's and early 1990's is characterized by swirling interlocking forms created with a heavy impasto and thick brushwork in shimmering shades of purples, creams and orange highlights. 

This large and impressive print is a great example from Olitski's "Mitt Paintings" period. It was commissioned by the illustrious Lincoln Center art program. Quite rare, this work rarely comes available on the secondary market.
