Peinture vinylique blanche sur tissu rayé blanc et vert

White vinyl paint on white and green striped cloth

October 1968

White vinyl paint on cotton canvas woven in alternating white and green vertical stripes, each 8.7 cm (± 0.3 cm) wide.

150 x 132 cm (on stretcher).

Milan, Italy


The two white stripes at each end are painted over with white paint on the front side.

This piece - exceptionally and like all the others originating from galleria Apollinaire and acquired by Guido Le Noci, director of the gallery - carries on the canvas, at the top and on the back side, the inscription, hand-written by the artist: "Made by Buren Milan October 1968", a stamp 'Galleria Apollinaire Edizioni' and, in addition, on stretcher: the notation: 'Apollinaire'.

This work is one of the ten paintings completed by Daniel Buren at the time of his one-man exhibition at galleria Apollinaire in October 1968, but was never shown, access to the gallery having been blocked during the whole exhibition.
