This exquisite limited-edition book with leather-ribbed spine presents a series of drawings on vellum and paper, rendered in a range of mediums including silverpoint, ink, lapis lazuli pigment and gold leaf.
Complete with scrawled annotations and collection stamps, the Renaissance-style drawings depict each of the 100 artworks that constitute Damien Hirst’s Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable, the subject of an exhibition at the Pinault Collection’s two Venetian museums–Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana–until December 2017. The book features a text by Amie Corry.
