This silkscreen print comes from the ~market ready~ group circa 1973. Occasionally Elton Bennett put together a combination of colors that he experimented with in several different titles. This choice and unusual medley included rose, coral, purples and gold. He experimented with these in West Wind, Sea Birds Cry #2, and others in the 1972-73 screenings. It is a very warm and rich color palette. I think that when this happened - when he struck upon a winning combination - he became very excited with exploring all of the possibilities of blendings, shadings, and emphasis. As a result, the customer of that time would have been able to purchase several titles that worked very well together. At the last, (although with many exceptions) he had reached an artistic pinnacle of complex color work. Given the restrictions of his medium and the extreme difficulty of handworking color blendings simultaneously one has small wonder that any others have chosen this difficult artform.
One of his last pieces. Trust group, mint condition, c. 1973.
