Description
Legendary bookseller and art dealer George Wittenborn cultivated friendships with many of the 20th century's greatest artists, and his guest book featured the artists' idiosyncratic interpretations of hands. This monumental facsimile, designed with cut-out alphabetical letter tabs like an old-fashioned encyclopedia, contains full-color tracings, drawings, paintings, and collages of hands by Picasso, Arp, Miró, Ernst, Calder, Man Ray, Beuys, Warhol, and nearly 300 others. Dozens of other reproductions by such artists as Magritte, Giacometti, and de Chirico appear as well, showing how hands have figured prominently in the art of the last century. The text includes Henri Focillon's "In Praise of Hands" and Jan Ceuleers' profile of Wittenborn and his remarkable book.
