Françoise Gilot, artist and inspiration Picasso. Now, at the age of 96, Gilot is releasing a facsimile edition of her travel sketchbooks.
Produced by TASCHEN with a limited edition run of 5,000 copies. Also available as three separate Art Editions of 60 copies respectively, each with a signed lithograph created by Gilot exclusively.
Three facsimile editions of 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.
