Still Life with Italian Plums, 1990
21 color lithograph, relief
14 x 23 in. (paper: 22 x 30 in.)
edition of 75

Still Life with Italian Plums was pulled at Magnolia Editions in Oakland, CA on a flat bed transfer press. The prints were pulled individually, one color run at a time, each drawn by Guy Diehl. After two proofing sessions, where various color changes were tried, the artist selected a right to print which was used as the standard for the edition. The artist continued to make changes and refinements and added more runs to the print during the editioning. Five rainbow rolls were employed to produce subtle color shifts, including a relief plate hand-rolled with an oversize roller to make the background gradations.
