Brice Marden (1938)
Gulf from the portfolio 'New York Ten' (1969), signed in pencil and dated 'B. Marden 69' (lower right), lithograph in black and grey on paper, numbered 40/100, image 34,5x51 cm, sheet 42x58,5 cm, The title of this works refers to the Gulf of Mexico. Marden considers the image to be an equivalent of the view from Robert Rauschenberg's house on Captiva Island. In 1966, at Dorothea Rockburne's suggestion, Marden was hired by Robert Rauschenberg to work as his assistant. Prior to that he had worked at Chiron Press as an assistant to Steve Poleskie. Marden was commissioned to make ‘Gulf’ by Rosa Esman for ‘New York Ten’, a portfolio by ten young artist’s working or exhibiting in New York. Marden had met Esman when he worked at Chiron Press. In its landscape format, with a horizontal division 'Gulf' differs from most of Marden’s diptychs at this time. Due to his inexperience with lithography the print has the appearance of a silkscreen and in its strong contrast of tones Gulf is a unique characteristic in Marden’s oeuvre at this point. Published in 1969 by Tanglewood Press, Inc. New York, and printed by Chiron Press, New York.
