Landforms #50, 1968, Lithograph
Albert Christ-Janer (American, 1910 – 1973)
The National Gallery of Art's biography of Christ-Janer describes the artist as an avid printmaker who developed personal working methods that often involved a good deal of risk and uncertainty. Through his experimentations he created a range of tones and textures that deepen and enliven his abstract forms. Nature was always his starting point, and he once stated, "The earth, sky, and the sea are my sources of information; art is my inspiration."
