DELUXE SLIP-CASED EDITION From the DJ of the standard edition... "Interwoven with the story of the artist's life, Kallir unfolds a balanced presentation of his art... lavishly illustrated... The catalogue raisonné of Schiele's work in all media incorporates the findings of the previous catalogues of the paintings and graphics as well as an entirely new catalogue of the drawings, sculptures, and sketchbooks... Including an extensive bibliography, a list of exhibitions, and appendices elucidating the nuances of provenance and investigating the signature styles and the materials used by the artist, this cohesive overview is the definitive Egon Schiele publication." THIS copy is an unnumbered deluxe edition in slipcase and all edges gilt, a real stunner. Quite suitable for gift giving. A customer once asked me if the endpapers were REAL marbled endpapers or phoptographically reproduced. Not being an expert on the topic, please assume they are whatever is least desireable for you and be willing to accept the book as it is.
