Descripción Altadena, CA: Twin Palms Publishing, 1991. Hardcover. Condición: Fine. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 172 pages. Published in 1991. Retrospective collection of the photographer's color photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. Limited Edition of 10000 copies. A limited number of copies were signed by the photographer under the auspices of the publisher. The Limited Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Sheila Metzner and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Green cloth boards with black titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued.

Acknowledgements, List of Solo and Group Exhibitions, Permanent Public Collections, Books, and Articles appended at the end, one of the best reference-summaries to Metzner's brilliant career thus far.

Presents Sheila Metzner's "Color". The photographer's sumptuous color photography work. The photographs include work Metzner did to explore her formal ideas about color - she uses it to convey and reinforce the sensuous atmosphere and texture of her subjects - as well as on commission, for celebrated advertising campaigns (such as the award-winning "Fendi Uomo" campaign). Her subjects cover a wide range: Landscape, still life, male and female portraits, and in many instances, seamless fusions of these various genres. "A retrospective look at Sheila Metzner's fifteen-year career in photography (1976-1991), from her early photographic prints of tabletop still lifes, printed and sometimes hand-painted by the artist to her masterful fashion work and southwest landscapes. The artist's original brilliantly colored Fresson prints are reproduced in this elegant volume for a definitive look at her work" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Sheila Metzner collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black pen on the title page by the photographer: "Sheila Metzner Santa Fe 2003". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few such signed, placed, and dated copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have major flaws or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 76 color plates. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SHEILA METZNER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0944092152. Signed by Author. Nº de ref. del artículo: 9537
