Bulk non-returnable discounts
A signed, leatherbound two-volume edition of the drawings for Damien Hirst's ambitious project in Venice
These Renaissance-style drawings, complete with scrawled annotations and collection stamps, depict each of the 100 artworks discovered from a wrecked ship. Rendered in a range of traditional mediums, including silverpoint, charcoal, lapis lazuli pigment and gold leaf, these exquisite drawings form part of Hirst's (born 1965) most ambitious project to date, Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable, presented at the Pinault Collection's two Venetian museums--Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana--from April to December 2017. The exhibition marked the first time in the collection's history that both museums have been dedicated to a single artist. Each volume is lavishly produced with a leather ribbed spine, tipped-in images and embossed title pages. This new special edition, published in a run of 100 copies, collects both volumes, presenting them in a white slipcase with beautiful red-and-black foiling and custom-made marbled paper interiors. Each copy is signed by Hirst.
