Cy Twombly 
Chanterelle 1980  
Lithograph, American Menu Printing, Manhattan

A new menu cover was created about every 6 months for the Chanterelle restaurant. Almost all the images were made specifically for the menus, although a few were already in existence and were adapted for the Chanterelle menu. In addition, some of the images were made for one night special events, such as annual benefits held for the Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane Dance Company.

Most of the menus were printed by offset lithography at American Menu Printing, 
a small print shop in Manhattan. About 800 copies were printed at the time new menu
artwork was featured. Less than 50 copies were saved for the Chanterelle archives. 
The special event menus were printed by silkscreen at Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE).
Less than 100 covers were printed for each event.
