Recognized as one of Spain’s most important and influential postwar artists, Manolo Valdés has always engaged in public works. Following on the heels of his public exhibitions in New York City and the New York Botanical Gardens, Valdés transports his artistic sensibility to France to stun Paris with a groundbreaking new demonstration. From September to October 2016, Valdés transformed the timeless majesty of Paris’ Place Vendôme and added to its celebrated and ever-changing history with an exhibition of six monumental sculptures. An artist known for his depiction of women in media, Valdés, using aluminum, iron, and marble, has created some of his most alluring works of art to date. This new monograph captures the astounding spectacle as a whole from start to finish and is the next installment in the story that is the legend of Manolo Valdés.
