Beloved German abstractionist Blinky Palermo (1943-77) is famed for his large fabric and metal pictures as well as his objects and installations. Less well-known are the works he created in editions: screen prints and offset prints, lithographs, objects and a template for painting. In their entirety, these works not only reflect Palermo’s development from the 1960s to his early death in 1977, but also show how the artist deliberately expanded his work with the possibilities of technical reproduction.
Updating a long unavailable catalogue raisonné, this volume, with the artist’s work Flipper printed on the cover, collects Palermo’s complete editions, including his collaborations with Imi Knoebel and Gerhard Richter, along with detailed information and commentary on those editions by Palermo expert and gallerist, Fred Jahn. Also included is a solo exhibition timeline.
