An exploration of the Symbolist paintings of Gail Potocki; with more than 100 works represented and discussed, the 208 page hardcover book also includes essays from Richard Metzger, the host of BBC's Disinformation: the Series and neuroscientist Marina Korsakova-Kreyn, and portraits of Jim and Bébé Rose, Joe Coleman, Grant Morrison, and Claudio Carniero of Cirque du Soleil.
"Features rare historical images (1895-1962) from the legendary Théâtre du Grand-Guignol, the Parisian theater which gained notoriety for lurid exhibitions of violence, death, and debauchery. Alongside these rare images are featured works by classic artists such as Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, Adrien Barrére, Josef Engelhart, André Galland, and Josef Fenneker, plus works by contemporary artists Chris Mars, Dave McKean, Gail Potocki, Michael Zulli, and Malleus (many brand new and never before seen before the publication of this catalog). The accompanying text will guide you through the labyrinth of decadent imagery, shedding light on the beautiful depictions of mankind's most wanton desires."
