Sewell Sillman (1924 - 1992) b. Savannah GA d. Lyme, Connecticut

Sewell Sillman began his art studies after he served in the US Army during WWII. He enrolled at the Black Mountain College in North Carolina. There he met and became a devotee of the artist Joseph Albers. Albers left Black Mountain for a professorship at Yale University. Sillman decided to follow Albers to continue his studies there. From Yale he received a BFA in 1951 and then a MFA in 1953.

He was offered, and accepted a position on the faculty of Yale. He remained there until 1966. He subsequently taught at Rhode Island School of Design, the University of Michigan, and finally retired in 1990 from the University of Pennsylvania.

He co-founded Ives/Sillman Publication with a fellow Yale artist and printed editions for artists: Joseph Albers, Romare Bearden, Jean Dubuffet, Jacob Lawrence, Piet Mondrian, Ad Reinhardt; and they also published a book on the theories of Joseph Albers.

He was widely exhibited during his life. His work was handled by both the Stable Galleries and Sidney Janus Gallery in NYC, and he is represented in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, and the Phillips Collection.

      Sewell Sillman, American (1924-1992), I-S #1, 1968, screenprint, ed. 16/50

      Est: $500 - $700

      Sewell Sillman American, (1924-1992) I-S #1, 1968 screenprint, ed. 16/50 signed, dated, titled, and numbered in pencil lower margin, framed. Sewell Sillmann came from Savannah, Georgia, before moving on to earn his BFA and MFA at Yale University. There he became a faculty member and taught printing and color theory; he also taught at various big-name American institutions including the Carnegie Institute of Technology, RISD, Penn, Parsons, SYNY Purchase, and Ohio State. He founded a printing company with a colleague, Norman Ives, called Ives-Sillman, Inc. in 1958, and together they published a seminal thesis on color theory entitled _Interaction of Color_. Alongside his printing for others, Sillmann worked as a painter and printer of his own works that have been collected by MOMA and The Whitney Museum. This extraordinarily visually pleasing screenprint created in two shades of greens on a double-layered pastel two-toned pink background features two zigzagged and parallel/ mostly horizontal striped line forms (made of smaller striped lines placed on different angles). This wonderful four-color 1960s print in an abstract fashion also somewhat mirrors the artist's own initials. It was printed in New Haven, CT, and is proof of Sillmann's mastery of color.
