This artist’s book features reproductions of works on paper by Francesco Clemente exhibited at Anthony d’Offay Gallery, London, in 1981. A focal point of the exhibition and corresponding publication was the Pinxit series, (1980–81), which consists of twenty-four works executed in gouache on sheets of paper from 200-year-old Persian manuscripts. The book is made with Indian handcrafted paper with seven colour plates tipped in. Interleaved between the plates are drawings that Clemente created specifically for this publication. A limited number of books with red spines include colourful additions to each drawing by the artist, creating a unique work within each copy. Signed by the artist.
