Very Rare Original Early Patrick Heron Serigraph Aztec Print On Linen 1945 For Sale
A very rare early original silk-screenprint on linen designed by Patrick Heron in 1945 and produced by Cresta Silks in 1946. This is the original textile, 1940s production on a linen/rayon mix, not any later re-issue print on paper from the 1970s. An important part of Heron's oeuvre and in the develpment of Twentieth Century textile design, 'Aztec' was exhibitied at 'Britain Can Make It' held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1946. This is a very rare survivor that is in unused condition, with no fading or discoloration, very strong blacks and browns on a cream ground. It is currently a stretched over a canvas panel, which measures 24 x 12 inches, but could easilybe removed from this modern mounting to give a larger example of textile.
'Aztec' is described by Heron's brother, Giles,as created by 'Somebody who's deeply immersed in modern art. Those most extraordinary squiggles as motif's, scattered over the surface.Each informed the other, he was developing and learning as a painter....' An example printed in a different colourwayon rayon is in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum.
