Following up from Nine Books 1973 – 1979, Edition Patrick Frey (Zurich) and Edition Weiss have released an exclusive new publication of another important body of work by the late, internationally acclaimed Swiss artist David Weiss (1946 – 2012). Die Wandlungen (The Metamorphoses) for the first time reproduces all 82 series of graphic metamorphoses dating from 1975 to 1979 in Marrakesh, Carona (Switzerland), and Zurich. In 1976, Edition Stähli published Wandlungen, a selection of 17 series of metamorphoses covering 73 pages, in a print run of 200 copies, each of which was numbered and signed by the artist. In the years that followed, Weiss continued his metamorphoses, switching from ballpoint pen on graph paper to china ink on plain white paper. By 1978 he had produced 84 drawings covering over 400 sheets of paper. The series vary from 1 to 37 pages in length.
596 pages, 29 x 21cm, hardcover, Edition Patrick Frey (Zurich).
