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

For example, in the mid 1960's his use of 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 impressive print is a great example from Olitski's work from this era. It wonderfully demonstrates his sweeping and swirling brush strokes in tones that play off of each other, shimmering across the canvas.
