Provenance: Heirs to attorney who represented Ives and Sillman. This copy has remained in that family's possession since it was printed. Ives-Sillman, Inc. was one of few publishers to produce silkscreen prints and photographs in monographic portfolios. Over two decades, 1958 until Ives's death in 1978, Norman Ives and Sewell Sillman were collaborators with some of the most important artists of their time. In the late 1950s, Norman Ives and Sewell Sillman established a partnership, Ives-Sillman, Inc. In 1962 Ives-Sillman published a portfolio of ten Josef Albers's silkscreen prints titled Homage to the Square. Because of its success, a second portfolio, Homage to the Square: Soft Edge-Hard Edge, followed. By 1966 they published Ten Variants, a third portfolio based on Albers's earlier paintings. Another Albers's collection, Six Variants, was issued three years later. (SOURCE: Norman S. Ives Foundation). Sewell Sillman (1924 - 1992) was a student of Albers at Black Mountain College who followed him to Yale for graduate studies, around which both spent most of their careers. Mondrian (1872 - 1944) was a Dutch painter and art theoretician who is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. He is known for being one of the pioneers of 20th-century abstract art, as he changed his artistic direction from figurative painting to an increasingly abstract style, until he reached a point where his artistic vocabulary was reduced to simple geometric elements.
