Carolee Schneemann: Early & Recent Work

ISBN: 0914232568
New Paltz, NY: Documentext/ Max Hutchinson Gallery, 1983. Limited First Edition. Hardcover. One of 100 copies with signed & numbered original lithograph by Carolee Schneeman. "Carolee Schneemann's international reputation as a pioneering performance artist and filmmaker must be placed within the essential context of her work as a visual artist. Carolee Schneeman: Early & Recent Work comprises the two catalogues- specially designed for this volume- of Schneemann's retrospective exhibitions at Max Hutchinson Gallery, 1982 and 1983." (from front flap) Two sections document works by the acclaimed multimedia visual & performance artist, first from the decade of the 1960s, secondly from the early 1980s, based on exhibits held at the NYC gallery of the late noted art dealer Max Hutchinson. With many black-&-white & color illustrations of the artist's bold, evocative & provocative creations from these periods. With introductory essays by Ted Castle for the early section; & Julia Ballerini for the more recent section. This is one of "One hundred copies of catalogues I and II (that) have been clothbound with an original signed and numbered lithograph" as noted on copyright page. The lithograph is a two-sheet spread between the sections, & on the blank verso of the second sheet is this inscription in purple felt-tip ink, in the artist's hand: "Small Souvenir 47/100 (signed) C. Schneemann '83." A beautiful production, in its rarest & most desirable form, of essential interest to the Schneemann collector. Book in very fine condition with only a very small, vertical neat-tear dimple near upper spine corner of blue buckram front cover (quite possibly a minor production flaw); a few tiny spot-stains in blank areas of title pages of both sections; otherwise virtually mint inside & out. Dust jacket in fine condition with only mild rubbing & wear at edges & corners of front, back covers & spine; small area of creasing with very slight loss of surface at middle lower edge of back cover. Very Fine / Near Fine. [Item #3119]
