Christo and Jeanne-Claude by Rudy Chiappini

Book Description

Nearly forty years after their first wrapping of a public building, Skira, in association with the Museum of Modern Art of Lugano, proposes a look at the artistic production of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the celebrated artist-couple who came into view in the second half of the 20th century by taking on an absolutely innovative role on the international artistic scene as environmental artists. This catalogue presents the couple's artistic evolution from 1958 to the present from Christo's first Packages and Wrapped Objects, items that were concealed with fabric and rope, created in the late 1950s and which instantly conferred him international recognition, to the The Gates, Central Park (1979-2005).

Fernando Botero by Rudy Chiappini Fernando Botero, Hardback (December 2015)

Botero has gained international fame, capturing the whimsy of life by painting corpulent and sometimes comical figures. This title presents the paintings realized in the last thirty years and created using his own unique language, which is a distinguishing feature of his work and a blend of Latin American tradition and European painting.

Bacon by Rudy Chiappini Bacon, Hardback (August 2008)

Offers a selection of some sixty works by Francis Bacon, beginning with his paintings from the 1930s, which reveal how early he was attracted to a figure's deformation and ambiguity, to the late triptychs, especially those dedicated to John Edwards, in which the artist's existential torment seems to move towards a suffered serenity.
