Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Looks fantastic next to my Jeff Koons in Versailles book. Great catalogue essays & wonderful images- helpful for uni essays & also accessible and interesting (stress on the interesting, nothing boring in here!). I love the art practice section at the back featuring Murakami's sketches, photos of the exhibition installation and small notes. Wonderful. Buy it.

p.s. There are also some fantastic interviews and such on this exhibition on youtube- check them out.

In recent years Versailles hosted exhibits of sculptures by major contemporary artists, Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami. This is a glamorous photo-book documenting Murakami exhibit. In both cases baroque excesses of Versailles palace and gardens provided unexpectedly perfect environment for modern art exhibits. Murakami more so than Koons, to my taste. This book is very well photographed and composed.I love it!

I own Copyright Murakami and The Meaning of the Nonsense of the Meaning, But this is my favorite Murakami Book. The reason why: SKETCHES. There are tons of making of sketches and color guides in the back of the book, maybe 1/5 of the entire book. This was the thing that awed me. There are great photos of the artwork also, but the sketches, wow. They made this book worth it!
