HARDY STRID’S WORK AND SWEDISH MODERNISM IN ART, 1935-1980. 1981. SIGNED & DEDICATED BY NASH & STRID.

£100.00

Munich: Omnibus Press, 1981 

21 x 14cm, 224pp. Boards with dustjacket. Monograph on the work of Nash’s colleague in the Second Situationist International; Hardy Strid. The artist was a major force for modernism in Denmark and was a co-founder of the Co-Rictus group (which along with Wolf Vostell could lay claim to be the original graffiti / street artists at one point appropriating an unused 300 foot commercial street billboard and overnight turning it into an abstract mural although two members of the group – Nash and Thorsen were arrested for their troubles; Strid and Kunzelmann were mixing paint at the time in the gallery opposite and completed the work). Many many full colour and full page illustrations of works which suggest Strid’s influences were much more pop than Cobra and extensive documentation of articles in journals, books etc and a major index / tabulation of all of the works of Strid and their media. This copy is signed by Nash and also by Strid (the latter at a slightly later date). Fine association copy of this useful and rather wonderful reference.
