Francesca Woodman

This book was published on the occasion of Francesca Woodman at Gagosian, 555 West 24th Street, New York. The exhibition featured more than fifty lifetime prints made by the artist from approximately 1975 to 1980—many of which had not been previously exhibited—including three life-size diazotype prints from her Caryatid series and Blueprint for a Temple (II) (1980), the largest work she accomplished.

The catalogue illustrates all photographs in the exhibition and features details of Blueprint for a Temple (II). In her essay “Francesca Woodman: At the Edge,” Brooke Holmes offers a new interpretation of Woodman’s work, discussing her photographic representation of the body in space, use of classical themes, and interest in collage and metamorphosis.
