LAOZI / Milan Grygar: Drawings

This book, containing the drawings of leading Czech artist Milan Grygar, was published in a print run of three hundred numbered and signed copies to accompany the exhibition Emil Filla and Milan Grygar, which ran from 14 October to 14 November 2009 at Galerie Zdeněk Sklenář in Prague. The original drawings accompanied the publication of the bibliophile edition of LAOZI: The Canon of the Way and Its Power, as translated into Czech by the renowned sinologist Oldřich Král, which was published in a print run of thirty-three copies. This special edition was introduced during the official opening of the exhibition on 13 October 2009.
“Red and black are the colours used for the thirty-three drawings accompanying the bibliophile edition of LAOZI, and cut-through paper substitutes for pencil-drawn lines. The natural laws governing the drawings are dependent on lines, and on the contrast between black and red. The storyline of the drawings is contained in the passage of time, halted by the progress of a straight line.” – Milan Grygar.
