A fine association, inscribed to Pat Caporaso, director of Castelli Graphics and a trusted aide to Leo Castelli for many years. Nauman had his first solo exhibition at the Leo Castelli Gallery in 1968 and the gallery supported Nauman and promoted his work for decades. Four illustrated essays by Van Bruggen in English are interspersed with plates featuring 301 black and white and color illustrations. Nauman signature remains elusive, inscriptions scarce, and rare with any kind of association. 304pp. with chronology and bibliography.
