It was Sondra Freckelton who advised Janet Fish to travel to Michigan to create fine art print editions with Stewart & Stewart. Bananas was the second master screenprint edition Fish created at Stewart & Stewart's Wing Lake Road studio. Bananas was printed with 13 transparent colors. The artist had a complete command of how to screenprint with transparent inks to attain a full spectrum of over 4000 achieved colors and values with a palette of as few as 12 transparent printing inks. Her total understanding of the medium is clearly evident in each of the ten master screenprint editions Fish created in Michigan from 1991-1996, including a fine print commission for the Detroit Institute of Arts. Both Janet Fish and Stewart & Stewart's master printer, Norman Stewart, share the understanding of color theories Josef Albers and later his student, Sewell Sillman, championed at the Yale School of Art.
Bananas was screeprinted in 13 colors on premium Rives BFK paper (archival, 100% cotton, acid-free) made in France, in a limited edition of 59 impressions. As with all Stewart & Stewart publications, each impression is signed and numbered by the artist and includes complete print documentation also signed by the artist.
