"A few years ago, midway through 1994, I had the idea of organizing an exhibition that would show the incursions into the world of photography of Picasso, Miro, Dali and Tapies, to my mind the four most important Spanish artists of this century. There had been significant attempts in the past to illustrate the fruitful interchange betqeen painters and photographers or, put another way, between artists who utilized one or the other methodology." 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall.

[Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).]. Fine. From the publisher: "Imagine that the great Spanish masters: Picasso, Miró, Dalí, and Tapiés used photography to play with and re-form their own works. What would these photographs look like? A convincing fictional answer is provided by Joan Fontcuberta, who after parodying various scientific disciplines (botany, zoology, astronomy) has taken to reinventing the history of art itself--by posing as the curator of such an exhibit, which was shown in the United States and Europe. Beyond the irony and humor of such a project, Fontcuberta explores such hot-button issues as the symbiotic relationship between art and photography, concepts of authenticity and authorship in an age of mechanical reproduction, and ever-changing notions about tradition and avant-gardism in the art world."
