End sheets are glued to boards covered in black paper; no spine. A reproduction of a painting is set into both covers; the title appears on one and the phrase "11.11.11" appears on the other. Issued in a slipcase of black boards with a flexible yellow cloth spine and a reproduction of Matta's signature on front. Item #111972
This artist's book is a tribute to Roberto Matta (b.Chile 1911-2002) in the centenary of his birth, but at the same time intended to be an occasion for the reader to know in depth the way of thinking of this great artist of the twentieth century. The book by its format includes two entries: You can start by going through a pseudo-chronological story, accompanied by their own texts, photos and reproductions of work. Or start on the reverse side, where a tour of his most poetic vision is made, also in the midst of images and photographs, some of them never published before. LIMITED EDITION OF 1250 COPIES.
