This is Fine Art Limited Edition (275) Lithograph one of the best works by James Carter from the Musical Boxes series, Established American artist, James Carter´s paintings and graphic prints are best known for their capacity to invite the viewer to re-examine familiarity of common objects.
Born in Port Chester, New York in 1948, he lived in Berlin, Germany from 1962 to 1967, where he initially studied architectural rendering and, after returning to the US, in 1967, he embarked upon an architectural career.
Soon, however, he found himself rebelling against the strict rules of this trade; Being intrigued by the collages of Max Ernst and the soft endless landscapes of Yves Tanguy, and later in New York experienced the works of Paul Wunderlich and Peter Paul, he felt there had to be a synthesis between drafting and painting, Still using drafting techniques, and utilizing a state-set environment, he began to incorporate both inanimate objects with land and sea wildlife as subjects in surreal compositions, In recent years, his art has become a means to explore the diverse relationships between the objects and the surfaces, using the tromp l’oeil effect to achieve luminous qualities of depth and space.
A selected list of COLLECTIONS holding his works, is as follows : ABC Television Network, New York The Bruce Museum, Greenwich, Connecticut Christian Dior, New York Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut
