These screenprints by Mel Bochner rarely come to auction. Bochner is well-known for his text-based works. "On/Over/Under" repeats a series of numbers to create a dimensional, multicolored pattern, while "Range" combines numerals with strips of tape to create a simple yet elegant composition.

Bochner is a pioneer in Conceptual Art, and his current solo exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York has received rave reviews. "Mel Bochner: Strong Language," which focuses on the artist's career-long fixation on our associations with words and text, is on view at the Jewish Museum through September 21, 2014.
