Booth-Clibborn Editions Presents New Book on the History of The Saatchi Gallery


LONDON.- Edward Booth-Clibborn knew the time was right to celebrate the vision of Charles Saatchi. The History of the Saatchi Gallery is the first book to chronicle the collection since it opened a gallery in 1985. It is important as a document, because many of the works included are no longer owned by The Saatchi Gallery, and a vital source of information for collectors, scholars and all those interested in contemporary art. Several of the artists whom the Saatchi Gallery first introduced have become household names, Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman and Damien Hirst to name just a few. Many of the exhibitions it has held are recognized as milestones, marking the incredible rise in popularity and awareness of contemporary art. The Saatchi Gallery continues to stimulate the debate, polarising opinions and putting on record breaking and pivotal shows. Each
