Description "Red Square with Three Corners," 1965, offset lithograph, after an original 1964 acrylic on canvas painting by Herbert Bayer. The image contains a bright red square with three white triangles toward the top, right, and left sides. A slightly blurry red square in the center of the larger square gives it the appearance of being on top of a separate white square below it--allowing us only to see three of its corners clearly. A fourth triangle (corner) is visible at the bottom. The edge of the four corners of the center square are shaded white as well.
