Presented in the format of a children’s storybook, The Story Of Red And Blue 20 is a print from Keith Haring’s The Story Of Red And Blue series from 1989. This signed colour lithograph is a limited edition of 90.
Representative of Haring’s desire to create a visual language that appealed to both children and adults alike, the series is formed of a variety of simplified images reminiscent of children’s fictional characters. Throughout the series Haring limits his colour palette to bright red and blue and renders each image in his distinctive linear style with black rounded lines.
The Story Of Red And Blue 20 shows an image of a human hand depicted in thick, bold lines, holding a large purple egg. Haring uses energetic action lines surrounding either side of the egg to add a sense of movement and dynamism to the composition.
Across the first half of the series, each print alternates in colour between red and blue but for the first time in the series, this print shows the colours red and blue mixed together to form the shape of the egg. In each print Haring uses simplified and generic pictograms to produce the effect of a children’s story book without a sensical storyline, where instead the story seems to focus abstractly on the colours red and blue.
