Description: This rare print was produced for the Diamond Jubilee of the Johannesburg Art Gallery 1971.The work is a “Relief Graphic” consisting of Screen Print and Embossing techniques.
This print reflects the signature style of the modernist, abstract age and approach to avant garde printmaking in the early Seventies in South Africa. A quality, unusual piece that bridges the gap between the old and the new South African printmaking history.
Boys was more well known for his abstract paintings, but this print challenges the traditional South African printmaking in order to usher in the new.
