George Condo: Mental States

£25.00   £34.99

Straddling the line between comedy and pathos, the grotesque and the beautiful, the rich pictorial inventions of the American painter George Condo (b. 1957) have made him one of the most inventive artists of his generation. 

George Condo: Mental States surveys the artist's career from 1982 to the present day, focusing on his portrait paintings but also including a selection of sculptural busts made in materials such as gold and bronze. Organised by theme, and including 100 images of artworks in addition to writings by Will Self, David Means, Ralph Rugoff and Laura Hoptman, this volume explores Condo's relationship to art history, popular culture and contemporary society.

This survey is published to accompany a major exhibition of the same name touring around the USA and Europe.
