Imagery: Art for Wine

Overview

Overview

In 1985, winemaker Joe Benziger and Sonoma artist Bob Nugent struck on the idea of putting original art on special releases of Imagery Estate wines. The goal was straight-forward: commission the world’s modern art luminaries to create works for reproduction onto wine labels. Two decades and 160 labels later, they have assembled a staggering collection of contemporary art, from the likes of Sol Lewitt, Terry Winters, Nancy Graves, John Baldessari, Judy Pfaff, and Bob Arneson. This book highlights 133 works of art, the best of the Imagery collection. The images are big and lush, and accompanied by biographical sketches of the artists’ careers, as well as a short description of their individual ideas and methods. The pictorial index shows the works in their label-form, from 1985 to the most recent vintages. These images are evocations of wine's multi-faceted ability to inspire us.

    Uniquely Valuable to Other Arrtists

    Did you ever want to take a quick look at who the leading contemporary artists are in America and see what they are doing? Unexpectedly, this book not only shows a large full color print of the art but gives a complete bio and cv on the respective artists, their picture, (funny how you can look at the artist and look at their art and see the connection)their recent shows and even their philosophy of art. VEry useful to art students, currators, collectors and other artists, (know your competition and what they are doing).
