Presents "Poetic Paradox: Ten Years of Innovation In Latino Art". A celebration of the world-class achievement of Latin-American art in our time. Surely among its most celebrated artist/practitioners is Luis Gonzalez Palma, whose work is presented as a doublespread with brief commentary by him. "I am a postmodern Romantic" (Luis Gonzalez Palma). There are few equally eye-opening and enriching introductions to the vibrant, innovative, and exquisite works presented in this book. An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma and contemporary Latin-American art/photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on his Contribution (underneath the image) by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art and photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Monograph available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. Some of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
