A stunning overview of Luis Gonzalez Palma's work thus far, the sum total of twenty years that have seen him become a world-famous artistic figure. Luis Gonzalez Palma, now based in Argentina, has gained enormous and well-deserved international recognition for his portraits that are rich with the symbolism of indigenous myth and culture, Catholicism and humanity. The figures that inhabit Gonzalez Palma's mythic world (angels, devils, hybrid creatures, and enigmatic characters) transcend time and place, suggesting that mysticism and beauty are his ultimate subject matter. Regarded by the Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez as the finest Latin-American photographer of his generation, the late great writer used "La Rosa" (duotone with oil varnish) for the DJ cover of his novel, "Of Love And Other Demons". Gonzalez Palma's photograph of a woman garlanded with a skull, toned and white roses on her hair is a striking image that, by itself, captures what he is trying to say about the paradox of Latin America: A continent of ineffable beauty and unspeakable pain at the same time. "Gonzalez Palma's images unfold with increasing significance, resulting in an underlying sense of tension and foreboding that is only slightly eased by their sheer loveliness" (A. D. Miller) . An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 25 color plates. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $40.00
