About this artwork

The largest and most ambitious print of Bontecou’s career, the magisterial An Untitled Print was made from 14 plates and rivals her sculptures, if only in size. This offset lithograph was produced from metal plates instead of lithographic stones; the image on the plates was transferred (“offset”) to a rubber blanket or roller before being printed onto paper.
