From Start To Finish: De Wain Valentine’s Gray Column

€24,00 EUR

by De Wain Valentine



This volume explores the fascinating story behind the making of Gray Column, from its original concept to its display at the Getty, which marked the first time the piece was installed as Valentine intended, standing vertically.

The book includes a short essay, a conversation with the artist and a wealth of stunning archival images taken during Gray Column's creation. Together they illustrate the extraordinary lengths Valentine undertook to develop a material that would enable him to cast colossal pieces, and the efforts needed to achieve their extremely delicate and pristine surfaces.

Shipping, customs duties and taxes are at the buyer's expense.
