Eindhoven: October Foundation, n.d. (1999)
42 x 30cm, full colour offset lithograph with an image of a "blue flower". Cornelia Wieg, curator of the Staatliche Galerie Moritzburg in Halle, Germany, took a photograph of a tree bark in the garden of the Novalis Haus in Weissenfels. Finlay digitally rotated a fragment of this photograph by 180 degress and found an abstract "Blue Flower" from the unfinished last novel Heinrich von Ofterdingen (1802) by Novalis, which became a symbol of Romanticism. If one turns the print then one can see the original carving of a date into the tree! One of only 125 such prints issued. VG+.
