        2 personnages enlacés. Sérigraphie en couleurs, violet, jaune et bleu, signée.

      1980 - Paris, début des années 1980, papier épais type papier hollande, format du support: 800 mm. x 570 mm., format de l'oeuvre 700 mm. x 440 mm., état neuf. Valerio Adami est né à Bologne en 1935. Il s'est formé à travers les ateliers de Felice Carena et Achille Furni. A Venise il fit la connaissance d'Oskar Kokoschka, et plus tard à Paris il rencontra Wilfredo Lam et Roberto Matta. Ses premières oeuvres se rattachent à l'expressionisme, mais très vite il affirma son style personnel influencé par le surréalisme, fait de formes fortement cernées par une ligne noire épaisse et traitées en aplats de couleurs pures. Son oeuvre a été exposée dans de très nombreux musées à travers le monde. Il a aussi réalisé huit vitraux pour l'hôtel de ville de Vitry-sur-seine en 1985 et des tableaux monumentaux pour la salle des pas perdus de la gare d'Austerlitz en 1992.

        The Accidental Death of an Anarchist.

      Pluto Plays, London 1980 - First English edition of the playwright's magnum opus; orginally published in Italy in 1970. Thin octavo. Signed by Dario Fo on the the title page. Fine in illustrated wrappers as issued; no hardcover edition was published. Dario Fo is the recipient of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Literature and is "[a]rguably the most widely performed contemporary playwright in world theatre" (Mitchel, 1999). The Accidental Death of an Anarchist shows that "[t]he quality that makes Fo uniquely powerful [is] the ability to wring wild laughter out of insidious corruption" (Guardian). "Simon Nye's witty translation updates and relocates the play suitably close to contemporary England. Fo is that rare thing, a far-left playwright with a popular, comic touch. And his stinging attack upon the black arts of government cover-up, manipulation and mendacity could not be more timely" (Evening Standard). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        1155 Los Angeles Art Cards

      Los Angeles. 1980-2005. A collection of 1155 cards advertising various artist shows and gallery openings in the Los Angeles area from the early 1980s until the mid 2000s. All cards are near fine or better with some slight edgewear from mailing. The assemblage includes invitations to some of the most intriguing West Coast art shows of the last few decades including, "The Sissy Art of Eric White," an exhibit of art by Owen Smith (renowned for the art from the Aimee Mann album The Forgotten Arm), and the Bettie Page pin up artist, Olivia. From the Eric White show Peter Frank, reviewing for LA Weekly, wrote that "His dream-state scenes, full of puzzled faces, double-images, anachronisms and attenuated unlikelihoods are painted with a vertiginous exactitude, its wooziness enhanced with bilious colors, weird superimpositions, and a tendency to render everything a little wobbly and elongated---El Greco goes suburban." Over the years Los Angeles has proved to be an important center for new artists. The work plays on an extraordinary variety of themes including most obviously, Hollywood, celebrity, and Disney culture as well as with the Chicano culture of the city's Spanish roots. The images show everything from sultry women to trash on the side of the highway. Every trend of the last few decades is displayed amongst the plethora of cards. A unique gathering of over 1100 exhibition cards for artists collected over the years documenting the increasingly changing tides of art in Los Angeles. .

        Dancing in Emilia

      Ivrea: Priuli & Verlucca, 1980. Prima edizione (First edition). ril, custodia (hard cover, slip-case). Perfetto (Mint). 8vo. Fotografie in bianco e nero e una nota di Gabriele Basilico. Testo di Mario Bernardo Valli Ma se il fotografo parte dagli spazi delle architetture e arriva ai volti, ai vestiti, ai corpi e ai comportamenti di chi vive in queste balere, sono più di ogni altra le immagini di alcune coppie non giovani che danno in tutta la loro evidenza significato all'insieme. Si tratta di squarci che il flash impone al buio, facendone emergere situazioni sparse, dal forte potere connotativo. La fotografia non possiede il dono di riproporre i suoni e gli odori, ma nel fondo di tali moderne officine del divertimento mi sembrano determinanti per una comprensione più approfondita, queste figure, la cui semiologia propone l'appartenenza ad una classe medio-bassa, positiva ed essenziale" (Bernando Valli).

        Pleasure & Function

      [New York / LA : The Offices of Fend Fitzgibbon, Holzer, Nadin, Prince and Winters, 1980]. Near fine in stapled wrappers.. First Edition. Top-stapled zine, 24 pages, with the business card of The Offices of Fend, Fitzgibbon, Holzer, Nadin, Prince and Winters stapled to the front cover. A catalogue issued either in conjunction with or concurrent to an exhibition in downtown Los Angeles, February 1980, in the studio of David Amico, entitled Pleasure/Function, featuring the artists Peter Fend, Colen Fitzgibbon, Jenny Holzer, Peter Nadin, Richard Prince, and Robin Winters, whose group business card promised "practical esthetic services adaptable to client situation" and "our consultation includes a review of your needs and suggestions for realistic action." This short-lived collaborative, whether it was really an art advisory service, an advice corporation, or something else entirely, did produce at least this zine, which is rare to the point of almost nonexistence. A "stopper" for Richard Prince collectors; one of the greatest pieces of art ephemera of the era; scarcer than even Prince's Spiritual America invitation.

Durch den Bundesvertrag von 1815 [..] war die Möglichkeit gegeben, das Wehrwesen zu reorganisieren. Für den Bereich der Artillerie ergaben sich dabei mehrere Schwierigkeiten. Die Militärhoheit blieb weiterhin bei den einzelnen Kantonen. So beschaffte nicht die Zentralbehörde das Kriegsmaterial, sondern es war dies die Aufgabe der Kantone [..]. Geschütze waren teuer, weshalb sie so lange als nur möglich als feldtüchtig erachtet wurden. [..] Erschwerend kam noch dazu, dass durch Einfall fremder Heere wesentliche Bestände an Artillerie verlorengegangen waren. Dennoch existierten 1804 in unserem Land rund 700 Geschütze, deren älteste allerdings noch aus der Beute von Murten stammten. Schon zwei Jahre nach der Schaffung des neuen Staatenbundes wurden jedoch 1817 im Allgemeinen Militärreglement die neuen Richtlinien für eine vereinheitlichte Artillerie festgelegt. Mit welchen Schwierigkeiten man dabei fertig werden musste und welche Männer mit welchen Mitteln in welcher Zeit eine einsatzfähige Artillerie schufen, wird im vorliegenden Band mit aller Deutlichkeit aufgezeigt. Die Entwicklung in den zwölf zur Stellung von Artillerie verpflichteten Kantone wird u.a. anhand von Inspektionsberichten der Militäraufsichtsbehörde sowie von kantonalen Grundlagen dargelegt. Das Buch enthält also nicht nur genaue technische Angaben über die einzelnen Geschütztypen, sondern deckt auch viele organisatorische, politische, menschliche und kulturgeschichtliche Probleme auf." (p. 7). - "Unter dem Einfluss des Systems Gribeauval besassen ab 1750 die Artillerie-Geschütze aller eidg. Orte dasselbe Kaliber, doch blieb ihre Ausrüstung weiterhin uneinheitlich. Ihre geringe Bedeutung im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert zeigt sich darin, dass in dieser Zeit nur drei Reglemente (zwei bernische und ein zürcherisches) die Artillerie betrafen. 1817 umfasste der Sollbestand der eidg. Kontingente 67'516 Mann und 120 Kanonen. Dank der neuen Kompetenzen des Bundes auf militärischem Gebiet erfuhr die Artillerie zwischen 1850 und 1860 einige Veränderungen: Gebirgsbatterien wurden gebildet, 72 gezogene Vorderlader aus Bronze erworben. 1863 zählte die Bundes-Artillerie 210 Geschütze, davon ein Drittel mit gezogenen Rohren." (etc. aus: H. de Weck, Die Artillerie in der Schweiz; in HLS, Lemma Artillerie, Abschn. 3). -- ISBN 3-7276-7009-6 (Bd. 1), 3-7276-7010-X (Bd. 2), 3-7276-7059-2 (Bd. 3) -- NETTOGEWICHT 3.6 kg

Una poesia inedita "Capelli biondi" e 5 xilografie originali numerate e firmate (da cm 19,5x16 a 29x23). Una delle copie su carta Fabriano Capelli biondi è ispirata ad un amore giovanile di Conti e fu scritta nel 1915. Le xilo furono realizzate nell'inverno 1914-1915, nel suo studio di via dei Della Robbia. Le matrici sono state riscoperte in anni recenti. Prima che il libro fosse stampato da Giorgio Upiglio, l'autore eseguì un certo numero di prove a mano. Fino all'età di 16 anni Primo Conti usò lo pseudonimo Umberto come indica la firma "U.C." incisa nella matrice. Le xilografie sono state impresse da Giorgio Upiglio a Milano e il testo dalle Edizioni D'Arte Cantini di Firenze [Jentsch, 1993; Gambetti, 2007]
