The present work is an original screen print signed by Lester Johnson, from his 'Street Scene Portfolio.' It features four figures, all wearing fashionable street clothing emblematic of youth culture and life. Johnson's use of color and his figuration adds to the sense of liveliness and sensuality in the image that is was as impactful in 1979 as it is today. Furthermore, the workmanship of the screen print captures the painterly qualities of Johnson's hand, making for a distinctly contemporary artwork.
