Robert Natkin (1930-2010) created some of the most innovative color abstractions of the late 20th century. He has been described as the "author of a dappled infinite." His light-filled canvases and prints are sensuous, playful, and visually complex.

Born in Illinois, Natkin would eventually attend the Art Institute of Chicago where he would be exposed to the work of the Swiss-German artist Paul Klee. Klee's belief that "art does not reproduce the visible but makes visible" would spark Natkin's interest in creating emotional content.

Throughout his career, Natkin would adopt a serial approach to his practice. The print offered here from 1974 comes from his "Intimate Lighting" series - populated by stripes, dots, grids, and an array of free-floating forms.
