This exquisite book with leather-ribbed spine presents a series of drawings on vellum and paper, rendered in a range of mediums including silverpoint, ink, lapis lazuli pigment and gold leaf. Complete with scrawled annotations and collection stamps, the Renaissance-style drawings depict each of the 100 artworks that constitute Damien Hirst’s, ‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’, currently the subject of an exhibition at the Pinault Collection’s two Venetian museums—Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana—until December 2017. The book also features a text by Amie Corry.

Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965. He first came to public attention in 1988 when he conceived and curated ‘Freeze’, an exhibition of his own work and that of his contemporaries at Goldsmiths college, staged in a disused London warehouse. Since this time Hirst has become widely recognised as one of the most influential artists of his generation.

Through a varied practise of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing Hirst has sought to explore the complex relationship between art, life and death. Alongside over 80 solo exhibitions he has worked on numerous curatorial projects. In 2008, Hirst took the unprecedented step of bypassing gallery involvement in selling 244 new works at a Sotheby’s, London auction entitled ‘Beautiful Inside My Head Forever’.

Hirst was awarded the Turner Prize in 1995 and his contribution to British art over the last two and a half decades has been acknowledged in a major solo retrospective exhibited at Tate Modern, London. He lives in Devon and has studios in Gloucester and London.
