Catalogue Note

This work is sold in a frame chosen specifically by the Artist

'Andy Barker, Howard's assistant, acknowledged that the painting from which Multiplication was based was executed using just two colours (Permanent Green and Unbleached Titanium Dioxide). Creating the screenprint of it necessitated the grinding of 12 different pigments to create 14 separate colours.  Again, Howard designed the frame for this edition to be framed in.'
