Oakville, Ontario: Mosaic Press, 1986. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. 496, [4], 476, [2]pp. Original illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth with gold lettering on spine and front cover. A two-volume monograph on the art and life of Mihail Chemiakin through 1985. Volume 1 describes the artist's early years in Leningrad (St. Petersburg), his artistic theories and early drawings, still lifes, illustrations and portraits along with photographs of the "happenings" in Chemiakin's studio and on the streets of Leningrad; his forced departure for France and his life and work there. Volume 2 is dedicated to Chemiakin's series of "Transformations" - reinterpretations of existing art works or artifacts; and to his first five years in the United States, where he continued to experiment with new techniques and themes, creating series of works in pastel on black paper and large textured paintings. Throughout the two volumes Chemiakin comments extensively on his own work and on the work of his contemporaries, both Russian and European. This set is profusely illustrated with 980 color and 405 b/w illustrations. Dust-jackets creased, with sporadic closed tears along edges. Shelf wear.
