'This portfolio of six lithographs entitled MINDED MIND was executed by Roberto Matta Echaurren between December 3rd and 13th 1966 at The Minneapolis School of Art. The entire edition was donated by Matta, the proceeds of the sales to be used for the benefit of the school. MATTA came to The Minneapolis School of Art from Paris for an eleven day period of demonstrations, critiques, and discussions ... This edition, signed and numbered 1 to 20 is printed on Rives ... Numbers 1 and 2 are hand colored ... '. (From the leaf with justification).

This set has the prints hand coloured by Matta and the prints are also signed twice, once in pencil and secondly in coloured crayon - presumably as he was colouring them. The lithographs were printed by the Tamarind trained Kinji Akagawa.
