LOU STOVALL (1937 - )
The Sixth Movement II.

Color screenprint, 2005. 374x711 mm; 14 3/4x28 inches. Signed, titled, dated and numbered 18/20 in pencil, lower edge. Printed and published by Lou Stovall and the Workshop, Inc., Washington, DC.

Another impression is in the collection of the Art in Embassies, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Embassy in Cameroon, Yaounde.

Inspired by Sergei Rachmaninov's music, The Sixth Movement II, The Sixth Movement, and Suite for Sergei are Lou Stovall's homage to the maestro. Stovall echoes Rachmaninov's The Four Piano Concertos,, best known by the iconic performances of Vladimir Ashkenazy with the Concertgebouw Orchestra and conducted by Bernard Haitink, in the fluctuating motion reminiscent of sheet music while referencing the motion of a baton wielded by an orchestral conductor. The concertos are arguably the most beautiful and complicated pieces of music to perform.
