New monograph: a retrospective of Yan Pei-Ming's paintings and watercolors from 2006 to 2019, structured around the figure of disappearance and violence, and around the confrontation with the works of the masters of the past as well as with modern iconography, with essays by Franck Gautherot, David Liot, Xavier Douroux and Fabian Stech.
Monograph dedicated to painter Martin Jannink by François Michaud, curator at Paris Museum of Modern Art. The rare and remarkable painting of the French-Dutch artist is figurative, both romantic and expressionist, full of melancholia, out of present time, with a delicate and disturbing strongness. The publication also documents Jannink's participation in the 1956 Budapest insurrection.
A well documented bilingual (English / Japanese) publication presenting ten recent paintings by the artist, and highlighting the special relationship between Pierre Soulages and Japan, where his work was exhibited very early in his career and quickly enjoyed significant recognition. A unique catalogue, published on the occasion of the opening of Perrotin Tokyo.
This catalogue gives an overview of the works by German painter Matthias Dornfeld, who depicts traditional subjects of classical paintings—landscapes, portraits, still lifes—with a style inherited from naïve expressive painting.
Catalogue of works by Chinese painter Yan Pei-Ming, gathering a series of landscapes, portraits, and historical scenes exposing the tragedy of our contemporary world. Featuring exhibition views, a text by Xavier Douroux, and an interview with the artist by Pascal Pique (catalogue of the eponymous exhibition at
Centre Régional d'Art Contemporain in Sète, France).
The novel by Jean-Louis Costes in a deluxe edition, illustrated by Anne Van der Linden—the crazy epic of Costes' grandfather at the beginning of the 20th century: a Cossack in Russia, a legionnaire in Morocco, a convict in Guyana and a collaborator in 1940...
As in mythological tales, the characters in Anne Van der Linden's paintings and drawings are mortals, animals, angels and demons, all coexisting in a lascivious Pandemonium. Vivid colors and rough strokes render well the grotesque essence of these bestial & erotic scenes whose symbolism could be compared to Frida Kahlo's surrealistic language.
A journey through mythology, antique civilizations and cities which are cradles and of Jannis Kounellis's own artistic reflection. The book is accompanied by a puddle of lead, an original and unique work for each copy, signed by the artist.
Can your monkey do the dog is the title for this book conceived jointly by Josh Smith and Christopher Wool. Thanks to digital imaging, they created together a series of pieces; one of them proposed an image from his corpus, which the other one reworked, by adding or removing elements. A new "layer" was each time superimposed on the previous one, without any constraint or mutual censorship regulating the alternating interventions.
This publication devoted to Otto Dix's print works (woodcuts, etchings, lithographs) showcases a collection from the Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen, Germany. A large iconographic thematic section and a series of essays revisit Otto Dix's favourite themes—the nude, the portrait, the city, religion and war—symptomatic of his desire to portray man holistically, from birth to death, as a creature of flesh, palpitations and blood.
This catalogue traces the trajectory of Warhol's influence on the work of Wool and Guyton. The innovative print processes deployed by the artists operate as conceptual fibers unifying the diversity of paintings oscillating between abstraction and representation. With an essay by Glenn O'Brien.
