“Nocturne in Gray and Gold” is one of the most rare of all the graphic works by Mihail Chemiakin. This piece is a serigraph in 80 colors from an edition of only 60 on black paper. This print is not framed and has never been framed or mounted. The print is in a flawless state of preservation. The size of the image is 36″ X 36″ plus full margins and it was published in 1998.
No picture can show the true beauty and quality of this piece of art. The texture shown in the highlighting, exists throughout the print. The edition from which this print was published includes 40 prints on white paper and 135 prints on canvas plus a small number of Artist’s Proofs; designated E.A.
The second and third pictures show this print as it appears in my home framed. The print offered in this listing is not framed and has never been framed.
Chemiakin’s serigraphs are truly master works, representative of his best work in the graphic medium. While he has created in excess of 200 editions of lithographs, he has created only nine editions of serigraphs. His lithographs usually have 12 to 18 colors, while his serigraphs have 75 to 100 colors, and four to six times the image size in square inches.
Anyone wanting to own works by Mihail Chemiakin will find his serigraphs are by far the most beautiful and valuable in the graphic medium and have very limited availability.
Mihail Chemiakin is one of the foremost international artists of our time. A quote from the Robb Report (Jan. 1995) states “so great are his talents that he is one of the few artists working today who sets the standard by which all other contemporary art is measured”.
He has earned 5 honorary doctorates. The Hermitage Museum held an exhibition in Oct. 1995 of such magnitude that a 7 volume catalog was printed for it.
