Description
A cast paper relief print by the innovative sculptor/printmaker Garner Tullis of the late San Francisco restraunteer Modesto Lanzone (1929 - 1999), a noted art collector. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Garner Tullis became best known for his printmaking, especially monotypes, but has also done non-objective paintings with encaustic, still life with acrylic, bronze sculpture and innovative work with film. In the early 1970s, he experimented with a process of bonding thin films of titanium and quartz in a vacuum chamber to glass plates, and the effect was "mists of rainbow color spectra over mirror-like reflecting surfaces".
