        VISHNU CREW STEWS VINDALOO ANEW

      Purgatory Pie Press, [New York 1990 - Aluminum and paper construction, contained in 16mm film canister (24 cm diameter), with printed labels on and inside the upper lid. Fine. Copy #35 of an edition planned to consist of 74 copies. Signed by Bartalos, and by Dikko Faust and Esther K. Smith, principals of the press. The construction contains four accordion-fold booklets, letterpress printed on handmade, Khadi jute paper. Each is bound between aluminum covers, which are die-cut into the profile shapes of a cat, duck, crocodile and man's head. They're attached with nuts and bolts to a circular, revolving disk, hinged to a die-cut figure, in an allusion to multi-headed conceptions of Hindu deities. The whole, when folded, is then inserted into the felt-lined film canister, calculated as an ode to Bollywood. "I was in India on this trip with my college roommate, and I was really struck by the industrialization and the modernization of India, juxtaposed with the traditional aspects of it . It's such an extrasensory experience being in India, and I wanted to express that in this book. . Each of the heads tell a story and how the industrialization is changing India very, very fast" - the author/artist quoted in the context of an interview. The publisher's current website and catalogue indicate the work is "temporarily unavailable" at the publication price of $2500.

        Le Desert de Retz.

      1990. [LE ROUGE, George Louis]. Le Désert de Retz: Le Jardin Pittoresque de Monsieur de Monville; A Late Eighteenth-Century French Folly Garden. By Diana Ketcham. Preface by Olivier Choppin de Janvry. Text in English and French. 120 pp. Illustrated with historical views of the park, a facsimile of 26 engravings by Le Rouge issued in 1785, and 32 new photographs of the garden sites by Michael Kenna. Oblong folio, 255 x 405 mm, bound in original blue cloth and matching slipcase. San Francisco: The Arion Press, 1990. |~||~||~||~||~| The de Monville estate, known as the Désert de Retz, was constructed as a gigantic broken column, an eighteenth-century fantasy meant to reveal the essence of architecture in ruins. This "magic realm" served to influence Thomas Jefferson, King Gustavus of Sweden, Marie Antoinette, and later, the Surrealists. This handsomely printed book presents Monsieur de Monville's fanciful landscape garden and its architectural monuments in a pleasing deluxe format. The new work contains reproductions of the original Le Rouge engravings of the estate, plus photographs which show the current status of the buildings and grounds. Limited Edition of 400 copies printed in Cochin type on Lustor dull paper. As new.

        Gerhard Richter : Patterns : Divided Mirrored Repeated.

      2 Foliio quer (27x40), [520] S., OHartBrosch mit ill OU, ohne Gebrauchsspuren, schönes gepflegtes Exemplar, Exemplar Nr. 750 von 800 numerierten Exemplaren (GA 850).---- Der Untertitel 'Divided Mirrored Repeated' verrät bereits viel über dieses Werk. Richter zerlegt hier das Bild Abstract Painting [CR: 724-4] von 1990 erst in zwei, dann in immer kleinere Teile und Sektionen, spiegelt und wiederholt den jeweilige Part vertikal über die querformatige Doppelseite. Es entstehen kaleidoskopartige, arabeske Muster und Formen, die immer kleinteiliger werden und letztendlich in einfache farbige Linien übergehen. So offenbart der Künstler durch die Skalierung abstrakte Strukturen und formale Gesetzmässigkeiten, die seinem ursprünglichem Werk, welches durch Gestik und Überrakelung letztendlich zufällig enstand, völlig abzugehen schienen.-

Postage beyond the UK will be by arrangement, and will cost more than usual given the large number of items in this collection and the weight (c. 30kg unpacked). The Mutiny on The Bounty (28th April 1789) is one of the most famous of naval events from the eighteenth century. Made into numerous movies and the content of any number of books. The Bounty was on a mission to gather Bread Fruit Trees in Tahiti in the South Pacific and transport them to the slave colonies in the West Indies as a food source. The expedition was promoted by the Royal Society, and the Bounty was fitted out to their specification, essentially as a large greenhouse. This resulted in harsh and cramped conditions for all on board, which in due course, once laden, had the consequence of creating tensions, and in turn the dispute between the ship's captain, William Bligh and his crew culminated in a mutiny led by Fletcher Christian. Forcing Bligh and a number of crew off the ship and into a launch, Christian, with a crew of mutineers took control of the Bounty and sailed it away, eventually landing on Pitcairn Island. Meanwhile Bligh and his small loyal group had made a safe escape over 3500 miles of open sea, itself an amazing feat of navigation and endurance. The events that took Christian around the south pacific to settle with a number of other sailors on Pitcairn, and Bligh's post-mutiny voyage are the core of this collection and the extensive research here casts much light on their ancestry in England and their descendents on Pitcairn, and puts the historical events into a new context, focusing so much on the individual real lives, stripped of the Hollywood gloss and spin, and illustrating the real characters in their correct historical context.

Number 351 of 600 copies, oblong folio size, [82] pp., signed by Alfred Eisenstaedt, with prospectus. "One of the true classics of our time, "The Old Man and the Sea" was awarded the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and proved a decisive factor in winning the author Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature. Alfred Eisenstaedt's (1898-1995) gravures, printed from the original negatives, were taken on a trip to Cuba in 1952. He is best known for his work with "Life" magazine, which is what brought him in Cuba in 1952, where he took the photograph for the cover of the issue containing the first publication of "The Old Man and the Sea." The typeface for this edition was one of three designed by Jan van Krimpen (1892-1958) of Haarlem in the Netherlands, and printed at Typostudio Schumacher-Gebler in Munich. The book was designed by Benjamin Shiff, and the gravure plates were prepared by Jon Goodman. Sara Krohn, Wingate Studio, and Robert Townsend printed the gravures, and John von Isakovics hand-bound the completed pages. This luxurious edition would likely have been openly scorned by the author, but secretly prized."___DESCRIPTION: Original quarter blue goatskin and beige linen covered boards, title stamped in gilt to backstrip, housed in a dark-blue suede lined fall-down back box, five full-page photogravures printed on Arches paper; Monotype Romulus printed on mould-made paper fabricated in Pescia, Italy, at the mill of Cartiere Enrico Magnani, oblong folio size (11" by 15 1/8"), [i-vi] vii-viii [ix] [1-2] 3-81 [82] [1 colophon] pp., limited edition, this number 351 of 600 copies, signed by Alfred Eisenstaedt, with "The Limited Editions Club" newsletter/prospectus slipped in.___CONDITION: A fine copy; clean, crisp, like new; in a like case, LEC Monthly Letter also fine.___CITATION: Per "The Limited Editions Club" No. 559, Series 50, Vol. 3, June 1990 Newsletter.___POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and heavy book, and therefore additional postage may apply.

The Mutiny on The Bounty (28th April 1789) is one of the most famous of naval events from the eighteenth century. Made into numerous movies and the content of any number of books. The Bounty was on a mission to gather Bread Fruit Trees in Tahiti in the South Pacific and transport them to the slave colonies in the West Indies as a food source. The expedition was promoted by the Royal Society, and the Bounty was fitted out to their specification, essentially as a large greenhouse.

        Korec Johann und Die Silvia Zak. Orig.-Filzstiftzeichnung auf weissem Papier.

      ca 1990 - 21 x 14.5 cm, Tadellos Seit 1981 bewohnt Johann Korec (1937-2008) mit Johann Garber und Heinrich Reisenbauer ein gemeinsames Zimmer im Haus der Künstler. Über seinem Bett hängen einige seiner Werke und viele Fotos, die er teilweise selbst gemacht und teilweise geschenkt bekommen hatte. Sie zeigen seine Familie und ihn selbst auf seinen Reisen oder gemeinsam mit einer seiner Freundinnen.In den 70er Jahren beginnt Johann Korec mit dem Abzeichnen von Abbildungen in Zeitungen und Illustrierten. Im Laufe der Jahre entwickelt er seinen eigenen Stil. Er arbeitet meist mit Tusche und Aquarellfarben, sein bevorzugtes Material ist Büttenpapier in verschiedenen Formaten. Im oberen Teil des Blattes stellt er eine Szene mit Tusche dar. Das so Dargestellte wird im unteren Teil des Blattes kommentiert - alles geschieht langsam und bedächtig. Abschließend koloriert er den oberen Teil seiner Arbeit mit Aquarellfarben, welche sich auf dem Büttenpapier wunderbar vermischen. Seine Mal- und Zeichenwerkzeuge sind deutlich erkennbar. Die von ihm verwendeten Federn spreizen sich nach nur wenigen Malen und lassen keinen festen Strich mehr zu, Pinsel bestehen oft nur noch aus zwei bis drei Haaren - er benützt sie immer noch. Oft zeichnet er in der Galerie der Künstler aus Gugging auf einem großen Tisch. Dort hat er seinen ?Malkoffer?, in den er nach Beendigung seiner Arbeit alle benötigten Malutensilien wieder einräumt. Immer wieder fertigt er in einem Nebenraum der Galerie auch große Leinwände an. Korec ist in der Lage, das von ihm kleinformatig Dargestellte auch ins Große zu übersetzen. Dies geschieht vornehmlich mit Handschuhen; Korec mag es nicht, wenn die von ihm häufig zu dünn angerührte Acrylfarbe vom Pinsel zurück auf die Hand rinnt. Zeichnet Korec nicht, so sitzt er oft rauchend im Haus der Künstler unter einer seiner Leinwände, die sich gegenüber dem Eingang befinden. Besucher werden also meist als erstes von ihm begrüßt, wobei er dabei Frauen bevorzugt behandelt.Gemeinsam mit den anderen Künstlern aus Gugging wird ihm 1990 der Oskar-Kokoschka-Preis verliehen. Seine Werke sind unter anderem in der Sammlung Infeld, der Sammlung Bönningheim sowie in der Arnulf Rainers vertreten, zu sehen sind sie im Setayaga Art Museum Tokio, dem Philadelphia Art Museum, dem Landesmuseum Niederösterreich sowie anderen renommierten Häusern. 600 gr.
