FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE. 2003.

£125.00

Ljubljana: International Centre of Graphic Arts, 2003
Exceptionally large, 68 x 48cm, 20pp (self cover). Exhibition catalogue displaying 13 large black on grey duotone drawings and an essay by Annushka Sanni. Perhaps the final evidence of Hirst’s greatness as an artist before his increasing descent into money-making, repetition of earlier ideas/themes and over use of assistants to make trite market-pleasing spin paintings in daft shapes and dots never mind re-printing of wallpapers for auctions of restaurant memorabilia to meet presumed demand. This is the companion to the editioned and signed artist’s book of the same name and in many ways far more difficult to find document from the British Council exhibition in Ljubljana. Heavily folded as issued with the inevitable small tears around the creases that these oversize newspaper formats always create, otherwise fine.
