Published by Skira together with The Fanzhi Foundation for Art and Education, the Zeng Fanzhi Catalogue raisonné. Volume I 1984-2004 is a combo made of three volumes contained in a canvas-wrapped box. The result of long years of research and tracking across various sources, this publication constitutes a landmark compilation documenting information about every single confirmed work by the artist.

The publication covers the first 20 years of the artist’s career (1984-2004), including his early works, the Hospital, Meat and Mask series. Each entry includes detailed annotations and background notes written over the years, worldwide literature, and exhibition records as well as any primary archival documents that have never been published before, presented according to international scholarly methodology. A number of previously unknown and unregistered paintings have been added to his oeuvre, so that an accurate, complete, and authoritative presentation of his body of work is shown.

Zeng Fanzhi (b. 1964) currently lives and works in Beijing. His diverse painting practice has established him as one of the world's most celebrated contemporary artists. Reflecting the spirit of his time, his art shows a strong interest in both portraiture and abstraction as a response to his self-exploration of individual experiences and emotions. Constantly redefining and reinventing his painting practices, he has produced a rich oeuvre of works - including the notable Hospital and Meat series, followed by the Mask, Portrait, and Abstract Landscape series - with many aesthetic breakthroughs and an apparent co-existence of contradictory languages in his creative process. His works have been exhibited worldwide, and are collected by various museums and private collectors.
