(SOLD): DAMISCH, Hubert and Henry Martin. Adami.
(Munich): Bruckmann, 1974. First edition. Square quarto. 196 pages. The definitive work on the Italian painter, Valerio Adami, who was associated with the pop art movement. Initially working in an Expressionistic style, he gradually developed a highly graphic aesthetic inspired by French Cloisonnism, a Post-Impressionist movement in which bold, flat forms of colour are bordered by black lines. This is a fine copy, as always lacking the signed lithograph, in fine dust jacket, with publisher’s plain card slipcase which shows some wear.
