Stunning reproductions of sculptures and paintings by the extraordinary French-born artist Henri Barande (b. 1945) are presented in this new monograph, along with essays exploring Barande’s artistic achievements. Barande believes his life is a prolongation of a death that has already occurred, and that his work is the surviving version of a previous existence, leading to the creation of a world of miniature forms and figures as well as monumental canvases. For 50 years Barande kept his work private, but 20 years ago American curator and critic David Galloway discovered Barande and persuaded him to share his vision with the world. Here, the amazing breadth and sequential nature of Barande’s work is reflected in the book’s design: the covers of the 4,000 copies of the book, all based on Barande’s paintings, are each unique.
