Product Description

New Realist in France, close friend of pop art artists in New York and Los Angeles, director of psychedelic films in hippie communities in Morocco and elsewhere ... Martial Raysse is one of the major artists of the contemporary scene. While her portraits of ultra-colored women of the 1960s have become icons and her allegorical frescoes are still surprising, Éditions Dilecta publishes a book presenting a selection of her drawings, from her beginnings to our days. Little known, these works on paper are imprinted with the same audacity and impertinence as his paintings, haloed with eroticism and mythologies updated. One hundred selected drawings constitute this publication, which shows his practice of drawing, not as a single step preparatory to his work of painting, but especially as very free plastic experiments, which allows him to explore techniques as diverse as The graphite mine, the pastel or the watercolor.
