more Fantastic Abstract Expressionist print by San Francisco artist Howard Foote, dated 1959. This is a multiple color stone lithograph printed by the artist. The image is about 19.5 x 14 inches, and the paper is 24.5 x 16.5 inches. The print is edition 4/14. It has never been framed.
We love the bright colors, and the odd shape - the artist inked the image to the edge of the stone, which in this case was missing part of a corner! That practice is typical of San Francisco Abstract Expressionists. Note that the shapes also give a hint of depicting a figure.
Howard Foote (b. 1936) studied at the California School of Fine Arts (now, San Francisco Art Institute) in the 1950s, during the glory days of the San Francisco School of Abstract Expressionism. In 1959-1961, Foote and 2 artist friends ran the Russian Hill Gallery, one of several small artist-run co-op galleries in the Fillmore/Union Street area that played a major role in the San Francisco Art Scene in the Beat era. (Foote also showed at Spatsa Gallery and likely some of the others.) A great print and a great piece of San Francisco art history! less
