CALVIN BURNETT (1921 - 2007)

Color screenprint, with extensive hand coloring, 1957-1977. 705x457 mm; 27 3/4x18 inches, full margins. Artist's proof. Signed and dated in ink, lower margin. Titled, dated and inscribed "Drawing Print" in pencil, lower margin. A very good impression of this scarce print.

20 years after the original screenprint was made, Burnett painted much of the left figure, as well as the entire white foreground, creating this unique version of Initiation.
