Diane Villani Editions was founded in 1980 to publish and exhibit prints by emerging American artists. There is also a varied inventory of prints by contemporary masters and works of special interest by other publishers, most notably Landfall Press and Cirrus Editions, both of which we represent in New York.
In many of his prints, Ed Baynard presents familiar still-life scenes, such as flowers in vases. He reduces the compositions, divorcing the forms from a context, thus accentuating the stylized embellishments that betray an Eastern influence. Baynard’s success began over thirty years ago, with his first solo exhibition at the Ivan Spence Gallery, Ibiza, Spain in 1970. Since then, Baynard has had dozens of solo shows worldwide. His work can be found in numerous prestigious collections, such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Tate Collection, London. The artist currently lives and works in New York City.
