Facsimile Edition.The Metropolitan's three sketchbooks by Jackson Pollock (American, 1912-1956), which date from about 1937 to about 1941, document an experimental and formative period for this major Abstract Expressionist. In much of the first two sketchbooks, Pollock followed the methods of his teacher-mentor Thomas Hart Benton (American, 1889-1975) by copying black-and-white reproductions of Old Master paintings from art books Pollock owned. These sketchbooks also contain a series of nude studies, two portraits of women, and the only known self-portrait drawing by Pollock. The third sketchbook consists of original compositions influenced by the work of Mexican muralists José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros, and also by Surrealism. Pollock's three sketchbooks are now published in a limited, numbered edition in facsimile form, presented in a rich, luxurious deep-brown cloth box. Each sketchbook facsimile is bound with chrome spiral bindings, as were the original sketchbooks, and stored on a separate tray in the box. They are accompanied by a booklet of illuminating essays, as well as comparative illustrations that provide detailed information about Pollock's sources for most of the seventy-one sheets of drawingssets.This is number 373 of an edition limited to 525 sets. Set of 3 sketchbooks. 71 sheets total. Spiral bound. Includes an 88 page-book. Sketchbook I: 18'' x 2''. Sketchbook II: 13 7/8'' x 16 7/8''. Sketchbook III: 14'' x 10''.

Designed by Jean Yves Cousseau. Unpaginated (92 pp., with 3 two-page gatefolds), with 75 four-color plates. 7-3/4 x 7-3/4 inches. [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).] CONDITION: Near Fine (moderate stray surface marks, visible only in raking light, slight abrasions to the corners, else Fine). From Parr and Badger: "The book begins with an enigmatic image of an ominous, half-open doorway, followed by one of a glittering knife, and we are soon at the heart of the matter -- the dark, sweaty Santa Rosa gym. The recurring metaphors revolve around violence, death, religion, poverty. His images of the gym, and also of a bullfight, suggest that the sacramental violence offered in sport is not, as some suggest, an incitement to violence outside, but a way to mitigate or break the cycle. The stage-managed violence of the boxing ring or bull-fighting arena is a release for the frustration of the poor and for the lucky few who might have the talent for it -- an escape."

      1997. Print. New. Lithograph print by Carl Barks on Acid-free Paper. SIGNED NUMBERED PRINT. Size: 8" x 10" (203mm x 254mm). Noontime on a busy street in Duckburg. Donald Duck has just picked up his new tweed jacket and bullied cousin Gladstone out of the loan of a walking stick. He stops at the florist for a bouquet and a boutonniere. On the way out, he bumps into one of his nephews lugging a shoeshine kit. Don checks his watch: there's time for a quick buff on the way to Daisy's. A simple scene, but it shows us ourselves. His hopes and dreams are our hopes and dreams; even a downtown street corner can be touched for a moment with magic, and this has made the duck one of the world's most beloved cartoon characters. Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #620 (Series II), January 1999, featured Dude for a Day twice, the oil painting plus an explanation of the lithograph editions on the back cover and a variant-angle colour photo of the porcelain on the title page. Dude for a Day was printed by the Black Box of Chicago in 1991.
