French artist Françoise Gilot, born in 1921, can look back on a long history. As a painter of the Nouvelle École de Paris after the war, her work hovers between abstraction and figuration, drawing as much on nature and everyday life as on moods and imagination. She has published a number of books, not just her famousLife with Picasso, in which she recounts her experiences of 10 years at the side of the most famous artist of the 20th century, but also poetry and stories with her own illustrations.

This fold-out box set presents a hardback facsimile edition of three sketchbooks made on Gilot’s travels between 1974 and 1981. Collecting direct impressions and abstract reflections, they are suffused with the distinct atmosphere of these places: Venice, India, and Senegal.

Gilot travels to Venice in the summer of 1974. Her regular visits to the floating city as a child have made a lasting impression, and she feels a deep, continued connection. Her sketchbook drawings are made with a subtle palette, centered on different shades of a watery blue. Views of the city are mixed with reimaginations of the canals and cityscape, yet it is above all the spirit, history, and myth of Venice that animates her work. She also pays tribute to its art with various pages characterizing her forebears: the Bellinis, Carpaccio, Giorgione, Veronese, Titian, Tintoretto. Gilot mixes writing with the illustrations, her beautifully organic lettering becoming part of the drawingsin which she depicts the canals, the cafés, the lovers at the water’s edge.

The second sketchbook is from Gilot’s trip toIndia in late 1979. She fills it with drawings while out on the streets and sitting on bumpy plane rides between cities. The sketches, mostly in black and white, capture people on the road, market stalls, cows and other animals, and wall advertisements for the coming election. Central to the sketchbook are the figures of women, working or carrying a load, always clad in impeccable sariswhose folds especially attract the artist: “The cloth is a cocoon,” she notes, “and in this latent metamorphosis lies the magic of the curved line.”

In 1981 Gilot visits Senegal, where she is impressed by the people she encounters, their movements and meetings, life in the circle huts and on marketplaces. Her sketchbook is almostjewel-like in its colorful intensity, juxtaposed with deep-inked black-and-white line drawings. Again we see many women in flowing garments, their poses like ornaments on the page; we see plants and landscapes, sometimes clear and sometimes as form, moving in and out of abstraction.

The three sketchbooks are accompanied by an additional bookletcontaining an introduction by Hans Werner Holzwarth, a conversation between Gilot and Thérèse Crémieux on the artist’s work and travels, and translations of the handwritten text within the drawings.

Limited and numbered edition of 5,000 copies.

Also available as three Art Editions of 60 copies respectively (No. 1–180), each with a separate lithograph signed and created by Gilot especially for this production.
