        East Broadway Breakdown

      Berlin: Holzwarth Publications, 2003. Fine in white wrappers, black dust jacket, card enclosure.. Deluxe Edition. Quarto in special box. Number 101 of 160 copies issued with an original black and white photograph, 4 X 6 inches, SIGNED, stamped, and dated. The book itself is neither signed nor numbered, but bears the publisher's "special edition" stamp, and is housed in a drop back cardboard box created for this edition, as issued. Each photograph in the deluxe edition corresponds to a different page in the book, so no copy is the same. Furthermore, the original photographic portfolio of East Broadway Breakdown was executed in an edition of only four copies, so these books likely provide the only opportunity to acquire an original Christopher Wool photograph. East Broadway Breakdown is Wool's mid-90s paean to the Lower East Side, and certainly ranks as one of the greatest New York photobooks of all-time, despite its relative obscurity. That Wool's photography has been almost completely overshadowed by his painting only adds to the the mystique of these relentlessly romantic images, hidden behind the bleak and grainy nightscape of a still rundown New York. No American photographer better exemplifies the greatness of the Japanese ideal than Christopher Wool; it has gone largely unnoticed that Wool is the natural heir to the Provoke school - the American Moriyama.

This magazine with images from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia and Armenia brings in exemplary images the hidden traces in those places where geopolitics is at work in search of power and oil. "Liebchen has attempted to conjure up a metaphor for what is happening in the area, seeking to make visible the invisible by photographing the invisible. He has decided to make use of one of photography's abiding traits, its transfigurative power, whereby the close forensic scrutiny of an ordinary object can yield a multiplicity of interpretive clues for sifting by the cultural archaeologist or the open minded, perceptive viewer." Gerry Badger. Presented in a sealed plastic wrapper with a fold out poster of one of Liebchen's images.

        Les dessins de François Boucher

      Scala - Paris 2003. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf – Reliure éditeur cartonnée pleine toile noire sous jaquette illustrée. Format in-4°( 27 x 21,4 cm )( 1265 gr ). ------- 264 pages - 91 oeuvres commentées - Bibliographie importante - Index **************** "" François Boucher (1703-1770), peintre célèbre au dix-huitième siècle en France et dans toute l'Europe, consacré Premier peintre de Louis XV en 1765, était aussi un immense dessinateur. A une époque où l'art du dessin était essentiellement considéré comme un exercice académique, Boucher fit exception en ne cessant de dessiner pour son propre plaisir. Ses dessins les plus connus illustrent le style intimiste et libertin qui domina une grande partie du dix-huitième siècle. Cet ouvrage, catalogue publié à l'occasion de l'exposition à la Frick Collection de New York en octobre 2003, célèbre le tricentenaire de la naissance de l'artiste. Il présente l'état des recherches récentes sur les dessins de Boucher, situe l'œuvre dans son contexte historique, et examine le rôle du peintre dans l'explosion que connut le marché du dessin au dix-huitième siècle en France. Boucher fut remarquablement prolifique, produisant quelque 10 000 feuilles au cours de sa carrière et prenant souvent sa femme et ses enfants comme modèles. Il fu en outre l'un des premiers artistes à cultiver ses relations avec d'importants collectionneurs afin de vendre ses œuvres, exploitant l'engouement croissant pour le dessin comme œuvre d'art à part entière. A travers l'analyse de plus de 90 dessins, l'ouvrage montre l'évolution de Boucher dessinateur, la richesse et la modernité de ses sujets, ses innovations techniques ; il examine, enfin, le style et les intentions de l'artiste dans le contexte des grands dessinateurs français de l'époque .

        The Point Of Drawing

Dated by the artist 13 Oct. 2003. Executed by the artist for a fundraising auction for Ruminator Books, formerly The Hungry Mind, of St. Paul, Minnesota. The auction was kind of a last minute affair that was hastily promoted and the piece didn't meet its reserve and Ruminator subsequently closed its doors after a long and successful run as one of the countrys most prominent independent bookstores. The piece measures 24 x 30 inches (60.96 x 76.20 cm.) framed to 33.5 x 40.5 inches (85.09 x 102.87 cm.). Spectacular.
