This is the definitive fifth revised edition of this famous and striking exhibition catalogue, which is itself a work of art. Wolf Vostell designed the catalogue for the Ludwig collection of contemporary art, given as a permanent loan to the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne. The covers are embossed plastic, and the 209 colour plates are tipped-in on special paper and covered with printed transparencies.
The work of 92 artists is represented, including Dine, Dubuffet, Hockney, Jasper Johns, Lichtenstein, Oldenburg, Picasso, Rauschenberg, Vostell, Warhol, and Wols. This final fifth edition includes 222 objects, 124 more than appeared in the first edition. A fine copy of the fragile and remarkable catalogue.
