Sam Gilliam (b. Tupelo, MS) was a key figure in the Washington Color School (1950s-1960s) and a color field painter. In an effort to display flat planes of color in a new format, Gilliam, removed his canvases from their stretchers and created three-dimensional draped sculpture. While Gilliam is best known for these "drape paintings", he is also recognized for his two dimensional collages, prints and works on paper. Gilliam is a great lover of jazz music and this edition pays homage to the musical programming of Lincoln Center.

This edition is printed on white wove paper in an edition of 108 with 10 reserve proofs. Each print is signed, dated and numbered in pencil. The edition was commissioned to commemorate Lincoln Center Festival.
