About this title


Claudio Bravo is one of the world's greatest hyperrealist painters, but such a label is too simple and insufficient for his dramatic, enigmatic work. He is known for his use of color, which seems to become more extravagant with the passage of time, and the increasingly mysterious arrangement of objects in his photo-perfect still lifes.Arranged in more or less chronological order, this newly updated volume traces Bravo's four decades of painting and drawing. The book also includes a catalogue raisonné, lists of exhibitions and collections, and bibliography, making it an invaluable resource for scholars as well as a highly readable profile of a remarkable man. "Bravo's paintings combine the precision of hyperrealism with the lush texture of a centuries-old classic, leaving one to ponder how, say, a rendering of a goat-each strand of hair taken into account-can mirror reality so acutely and, at the same time, transcend it." -New York Times Book Review

From the Back Cover:

This richly illustrated monograph, the first on Claudio Bravo, features introductory essays by two great writers, the artist's close friends Paul Bowles and Mario Vargas Llosa. They give us a personal view of the man as well as the painter and provide a glimpse into Bravo's extraordinary house in Tangier - with its eclectic collection of art objects and furnishings and seemingly endless gardens designed in a diversity of styles. Concluding the book, an interview with the artist provides important insights into his philosophy and working methods. The book also includes a catalogue raisonne, lists of exhibitions and collections, and bibliography, making it an invaluable resource for scholars as well as a highly readable profile of a remarkable man.
