Tea for Three is a four-color silkscreen print by architect Michael Graves. Created for Collab, the Contemporary Design Group for the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the fall of 1995, it was hand-printed by Chad Andrews, Instructor of Printmaking at the University of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Graves began with a line drawing on tracing paper. He transferred the image onto four mylar sheets with a litho crayon, creating four color separations. The mylar separations were then transferred photographically to the silk screens. The colors of each of the oil-based silkscreen inks were hand-mixed by the printer to Mr. Graves' specifications. The image was printed on Arches cover.
The edition is limited to two hundred numbered prints. Each is signed and numbered by Mr. Graves.
