Beschreibung:

COPLANS, JOHN. A Body of Work: Self Portraits. 24 original photographs; silver prints, (7 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches; 200 x165 mm, and smaller), each tipped to Saunders paper. 4to, publisher's black-stamped burgundy cloth; original cloth slipcase. Limited edition of 10 copies, signed and numbered 3 by Coplans, in pencil. Coplans wrote about his work: "All my images are atavistic. They seem to refer to distant models and to numerous sources. At one moment, I may echo the Venus of Willendorf or a fragment of a warrior from the Parthenon. My imagery is not bound by rules; I wander freely throughout the history of art." New York: Printed Matter, 1987
