Ion Grigorescu — Catalogue Raisonne

Profile: Art Catalogue, Task: Book Design


A Catalogue Raisonne embodies the whole range of work or specific type of work of an artist. It should do the artist justice, and his work. The graphic solution should be identifiable with the artist, but should feel as though it was made by an art critic that captured his essence.

All of this gained new dimensions when the task at hand was directed towards the work of famous Romanian artist Ion Grigorescu, his work being neither of visual aesthetics or easy subjects.

His work is raw, visceral, destructive, disruptive and his visual manner is iconoclastic. For all of this, the catalogue is unpretty and raw, done within a visual statement.
The wire used is a very soft aluminium, easy to bend and twist.
