New Edition of The Impossible Collection of Art

New Edition of The Impossible Collection of Art – In The Impossible Collection of Art, Ségalot and Giraud curate the ideal contemporary collection- a collection in which money is no object and anything is possible. Whether “impossible” to obtain or available at the tip of a paddle, these works are remarkable on their own, but as a collection they form a unique perspective on contemporary art. Capturing the essence of today’s art world that is at once rarefied, deified, and revolutionary, this limited edition volume presented in a linen box was assembled using the traditional anglaise technique and color-tipped by hand on art-quality paper. Each page bears the unique imprint of the artisan.

Thanks to Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, the most glorious page in the history of ballet, one of the most magnificent moments in the adventure of Art, was written. To turn the pages of this stunning book, which offers rare documents from the legendary Ballets Russes from 1911 to 1914 (Monte Carlo years), is to follow Diaghilev on his creative quest—a journey that continues to influence art, theater, ballet, and fashion to this day.
