Gilbert & George are among the foremost artists of their generation, and their work has attracted both fierce controversy and enormous acclaim. A collaborative team, they were early to explore performance as an art form, early to mingle photography and graphics in a style reminiscent of advertising, and early to address sexual identity in their work. In fact, they were early to do much that viewers now take for granted.
Gilbert & George: The Complete Pictures 1971–2005 was produced on the fortieth anniversary of their meeting and on the eve of a major retrospective that toured six international venues. Designed and produced by the artists, this two-volume hardcover set, which comes in its own carrying case, documents every picture the pair has created. With 1,500 color illustrations, The Complete Pictures is the most extensive publication on the artists' work ever assembled.
