Summary

Gagosian Gallery Poster Edition is a portfolio of six screenprints. It was published by Gagosian Gallery, London and printed by Karl-Heinz Neumann, Cologne in an edition of thirty on thin white wove paper, mid-blue in colour, on the reverse. Tate’s copy is the third in the edition. Each print was made using between two and seven colours.

The portfolio utilises many of the graphic motifs that have come to typify Wright’s personal imagery.
