Footnotes

  • Dutch Iris originated in 1992 and reveals a rare symphony of colour in Kentridge's largely monochromatic oeuvre. Drawing on the rich blues and purples of Van Gogh's iris paintings, Kentridge created three plates, each with an array of complex markings which allowed for the layering of inks and an edition of luscious vibrancy. Each plate was so brilliant and contained such variety that each was subsequently editioned self-standing.
