The gaucho is an iconic symbol of the romantic ideal of the
love of freedom and of the unspoiled landscape. With his camera, renowned
Argentine artist Aldo Sessa spent months on end traveling around Argentina to
its farthest reaches, sparing no effort or sacrifice, to follow and record the
traces of these expert nomadic horsemen who preserve the Argentine tradition.
Silently, without distracting them, Sessa captured the gauchos at all instances
of their rustic daily life, around 50,000 images in total, each shot in
fulfilment of a promise to Juan José Güiraldes, the legendary Argentine writer,
aviator, and founding president of the Argentine Gaucho Confederation to
eternalize the gaucho spirit. This spectacular volume captivates readers with
sweeping vistas, fascinating details of traditional gaucho clothing and
equipment, and compelling portraits of men young and old and their staunch
Gilot has led a remarkable life.
As a teenager she met the artist Pablo Picasso
and had a 10-year relationship with him, becoming the mother of two children,
Claude and Paloma, the latter of whom became a renowned jewellery designer.
Later, the French-born Gilot moved to the United States, where she met and
married Jonas Salk, the creator of the first successful vaccine to prevent
polio. Gilot is in her 90s but still shuttling between New York and Paris,
painting and thinking.
Three Sketchbooks and an Illustrated booklet – Venice, India
& Senegal. Françoise Gilot’s
travel sketchbooks, made
between 1974 and 1981, combine the distinct atmospheres of Venice, India, and
Senegal with Gilot’s abstract figuration. Packaged in a fold-out box set, the
sketchbooks are accompanied by an illustrated booklet which gathers an
insightful introduction, a conversation
with the artist on her work and travels, and translations
of the handwritten text within the drawings. Limited and numbered edition.
