A really superb item for the Mid Century collector: silkscreen print titled lower left "Fortress" and numbered there 22/25, and signed at lower right and dated 1968 by the noted English modern artist and art educator IAN TYSON (1933-). The colors are vibrant, the work clean, though there is an even rippling of the paper throughout the margins. Tyson was born in Cheshire and studied at the Birkenhead School of Art and at the Royal Academy schools. He taught at various institutions from 1959 into the 1980's. Later he was offered and accepted opportunities to teach at the University of Wisconsin at Madison and at the University of California at San Diego. Tyson's first solo show was in 1961, and he has been widely exhibited since. Measurements: 30 3/4" by 17 1/2" in thin strip metal framing--an excellent size and complement to that small vertical wall area in need of artwork. Allow for reflections in some images.
