The epitome of 1950s art! Including the frame. Beautiful abstract image of Joseph in is coat of many colors; however, in this print his coat is in subdued colors. With those colors being gorgeous tones of brown and black and muted tones of turquoise and yellow. The wood of the frame has been fully restored and the linen, between the outer frame and the liner, had its off-white paint freshened. Dean J. Meeker 1920-2002 was an internationally recognized printmaker and sculptor with a Bachelors and Masters of Fine Art from Northwester University and The Art Institute of Chicago. He began a teaching career in 1946 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and remained an unprecedented 46 years being the only Art Department faculty member ever to have earned a Masters of Fine Art. He is noted as teaching the first ever university-affiliated course in serigraphy, breaking the “fine art” barrier for serigraphy, and inventing, along with engineer John McFee, the Meeker-McFee motorized etching press for overprinting silk-screens with polymer intaglio. He has been recognized as one of the outstanding printmakers in the United States. His works are in collections worldwide including Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian, Milwaukee Art Center, Walker Art Center, and Victoria and Albert Museum.
