MICHELANGELO PISTOLETTO. 1967.

£85.00

Bruxelles: Palais des Beaux-Arts, 1967

21 x 15 cm, 16pp plus pictorial covers. Exhibition catalogue for this relatively early show which displays seven photographs by Pistoletto of foregrounded couples standing in his exhibition with the works sitting rather redundantly behind them – ie the point of the photographs are the figures in the artistic landscape and their inferred relationships.

The texts in French (by Jean Dypreau and the artist – the latter translated from Italian ) and English (by Henry Martin) tend to ignore these illustrations while noting the role of reflection in the work of the arte povera artist.

An early candidate for an artist’s book by Pistoletto created at the same time as he was writing some of his most important theoretical texts and before his better known interactive sculptures were undertaken. Fine and scarce.
