The first comprehensive publication of Whiteley’s artistic oeuvre
This monumental seven-volume collection chronicles a lifetime of work in exhaustive detail. Compiled by art historian Kathie Sutherland over seven years, the set of cloth-bound books is presented in a deluxe, elegantly finished slipcase and presents more than 4600 artworks, including hundreds of never-before-published works.
Weighing 25 kilograms and totalling 3000 pages, Brett Whiteley: Catalogue Raisonné: 1955–1992 is an unprecedented publishing event that confirms Whiteley’s enduring significance as a visionary force of Australian art.
Volumes 1, 3 and 4 hold paintings and drawings from the 1950s to the 1990s; Volume 2 contains exquisite concertina fold-outs of the mammoth Alchemy and The American Dream; Volume 5 contains Whiteley’s prints; and Volume 6 compiles his ceramics and sculpture. A final book, Volume 7, holds essays, a cataloguing text, an exhibition history, an artist’s biography, a bibliography and an index of persistent themes that lend insightful form to the expanse of Whiteley’s rich and varied oeuvre.
