Volume one of the two-part major publication on the artist Sturtevant, both long out of print.

Sturtevant’s investigations into the duality of original and copy, object and image, similarity and difference are contributions of outstanding importance to contemporary art.

Elaine Sturtevant (1930–2014), has been concerned since the mid-1960s with one of the most important themes in Western art – the aspect of originality. Her works are reproductions of existing works by such artists as Marcel Duchamp, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Frank Stella, to name only a few. Often indistinguishable from the originals, they call attention to the crucial issues of origin and difference. Designed and produced in close collaboration with the artist, this opulently illustrated publication (produced and published consecutively with another catalogue rainsonné volume) offers an unprecedented overview of the unique and unparalleled work of this American artist. This special book functions somewhat like an artist’s scrapbook, reproducing rarely seen photographs of Sturtevant in her studio producing the above-mentioned works, alongside promotional imagery, exhibitions views, and sketches, drawings, plans, notes, and photos from her work production throughout her entire career. An incredible insight into her working. Edited by Udo Kittelmann, Mario Kramer and Lena Maculan, this particular book also features a great interview between Sturtevant and the great artist/film director John Waters!
