Olanda. XXXIV Biennale Venezia 1968

Visser, Carel

Hilversum. Steendrukkerj de Jong & Co. 1968
Carel Visser's catalogue / multiple 'Olanda' for the XXXIV Biennale 1968.

The catalogue for Visser's Biennale presentation in the original card slipcase together with Visser's multiple with the stamped titles: 'CAREL VISSER OLANDA - XXXIV BIENNALE - VENEZIA 1956'; it appears likely that Visser's multiple was not limited.

A leading exponent of Dutch Abstract-Minimalist Constructivism in sculpture, Visser was awarded the David E. Bright sculpture prize at the Biennale for the same year.
[32 unnumbered leaves]. Tall 8vo. (298 x 100 mm). Leaf with title, leaf with biographical details, leaf with Visser's introduction, 25 leaves with monochrome reproductions of drawings of works by Visser each with title recto only, three leaves with list of works, leaf with layout of Visser's exhibition and printer's credit and publisher's details verso; Visser's metal multiple is inserted loosely. Original black paper wrappers and white card slipcase with title 'Carel Visser Olanda' excised from upper cover.
