The theme is representations of Mickey Mouse in abstract silhouette forms. On patterned backgrounds which look like printed paper squares randomly stacked. They're framed in identical Graves-designed frames, painted matte gray with corner cleats in the form of Mickey's head in terracotta. These were designed by Graves near the beginning of his involvement with the Walt Disney Co. He had designed the Swan and Dolphin hotels which were completed in 1990 and was about to embark on an extensive campaign of industrial design work for the company, creating upmarket home goods and eventually kitchenware incorporating the iconic Mickey Mouse design.These prints were likely a test run of some of the design ideas which would show up in those products. I believe they were offered through the Disney Store catalog, as a halo product. Size : Frames are 29.5 square. Sight (openings) are 24 square.
