Color lithograph on Arches, 1964. 755x554 mm; 30x22 inches (sheet), full margins. Artist's proof, aside from the edition of 65. Signed and dated in pencil, lower left. Published by the Martha Jackson Gallery, New York. A very good impression of this scarce lithograph.

Jenkins (1923-2012) exhibited regularly at the Martha Jackson Gallery, New York (he had his first solo exhibition in New York there in 1956). In the mid-1960s, Martha Jackson established Red Parrot Films, a production company that made art documentaries. Red Parrot Films' production of The Ivory Knife, on the art of Jenkins, received the Golden Eagle Award at the 1966 Venice Film Festival. In 1963, Jenkins took over Willem de Kooning's light-infused loft at Union Square in New York, where he worked until the end of 2000.
