This title offers an insightful exploration of how physical location informs the artists work. This book presents a sampling of contemplative work by Francesco Clemente. Created over four years and across four continents, the 44 works span a breadth of media: from watercolour to ink to pastel. "A Private Geography" explores the impact Clemente's physical location has on his work, examining the extent to which his nomadic lifestyle informs his selection and treatment of medium and image. It also delves into how the mystical traditions of India and Brazil continue to nourish and inspire Clemente's work, as they counter his keen - yet subtle - sense of artistic irony.
