Funded by a 1964 gift from Drue Heinz to provide financial support to the literary magazine, The Paris Review, whose print/poster series encouraged contemporary artists such as Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011, see lots 54-57 , lot 199 and lot 200 ), Robert Motherwell (1915-1991, see lots 12-27 and lot 201) and Andy Warhol (1928-1987, see lot 210, lots 229-244), among others, to produce signed, limited editions of their original works, to donate for sale by the magazine.
Many of the early Paris Review posters, from the mid-to-late 1960s, were printed by Stephen Poleskie at his Chiron Press studio in lower Manhattan, impressions of which and related preparatory works are offered in the current auction (see lots 200, 201, 207, 208, 210, 216-220 and 225).
