Gilbert & George, Signed
[Signed by Gilbert & George] Jahn, Wolf.The Art of Gilbert & George, or An Aesthetic of Existence. First Edition. 1989. Book and dust jacket are both in very good condition—there is an ink smear on the title page (probably a publisher’s defect). Book is signed by both Gilbert and George on the flyleaf, “Gilbert & George.” Translated by David Britt.
Shades of Salvador Dali, this comprehensive monograph on the Turner Prize-winning duo delves deeply into the religious and mythic implications of their work. It includes their early pieces from the late 1960s as well as the large photograph collages that they began producing later. In all, there are four hundred photographic reproductions of their work, with nearly three hundred in full color.
