Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 310 pages. Published in 2000. Retrospective monograph on subject. One of the most beautiful and definitive books on the art of Eric Fischl. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the 2007 New Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by The Monacelli Press: Oversize-volume format. Maroon hard boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Art by Eric Fischl. Essays by various contributors. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in one lavish volume, the art of Eric Fischl. He "emerged in the 1980's as one of America's most important figurative painters. His paintings compel the viewer to participate in a world of suburban ambiguity and drama. In Fischl's engaging and distinctly American canvases, narration, sexuality, and psychology are preeminent. A comprehensive examination of this important twentieth-century painter: Two hundred thirty-three works, selected in conjunction with the artist, present the full scope of Fischl's career over the past decades: The 1970's, with Fischl's seminal formative work; the 1980's, when he burst onto the art world; and the 1990's, with the artist's mature works, often of a personal and contemplative nature. In his most recent paintings, Fischl has turned to portraits of his intimate circle of friends, including Mike Nichols, Steve Martin, and his wife, the painter April Gornik. These engrossing images have been accomplished with a mastery that has been compared to that of Caravaggio. Philosopher and art critic Arthur C. Danto places Fischl in the context of his contemporaries. Commentary drawn from interviews with Fischl, conducted by noted writer Robert Enright, accompanies the paintings" (Publisher's blurb). Fischl's paintings celebrate some of life's most rewarding aspects: Vitality, sensuality, beauty, sexuality. An absolute "must-have" title for Eric Fischl collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Eric Fischl. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great art book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Given its exemplary production values, it should not be confused with the more common 2007 Edition. A rare signed copy thus. 233 color plates. One of the greatest artists of our time. A fine collectible copy. ISBN 1580930751. Bookseller Inventory #
