THE

forgotten
PRINT EDITION

MIHAIL 2004 The forgotten PRINT EDITION was printed by the artist in 1974 in his New York studio. It is from the HOSHO series of prints (1972-1974). HOSHO is the name of the Japanese rise paper on which they were printed. Printed from engraved plaster plate where colors are applied on the plate and on the back of the paper when laid over, a technic the artist invented while residing inTunis (1965-1971). This print edition finished with pastels: each print exploring the variable potential of the artist’s SUNDAY MORNING elements which constitute the body of the work. At that time,1974, Mihail was already moving to another idea, casting from nature; SAND in the Sahara dessert of Tunis, and cast of GRASS in France. Two years later he would embark on his CAST THE SLEEPING ELEPHANT project, the cast of a wild, bull elephant in wilderness of Kenya and a bronze sculpture installed in 1998 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, gift of Kenya, Namibia and Nepal. The FORGOTTEN EDITION, locked for the past 37 years, has never been exhibited.
