Overview

Celebrates a major retrospective of the designer’s work at the Musée des ArtsDécoratifs in Paris.Jean-Paul Goude is one of the world’s most brilliant and unorthodox image makers. This book assembles the biggest collection of his work ever seen: sketches, paintings, magazine spreads, storyboards, art-directed and elaborately staged photography, and photographic documentation (as well as preliminary sketches) for stage and street shows.From his New York days with Esquire to his latest work for Galéries Lafayette in Paris, Goude has consistently surprised, provoked, and delighted those who have encountered his work. He was Grace Jones’s Pygmalion, creating unforgettable images of her, from andryogyne to cyber-superwoman to supreme diva. One of advertising’s most sought after stars, Goude masterminded memorable campaigns for Chanel, Perrier, and Kodak, among others.Around 500 images, including many working documents, are on show here, from inspired doodles to final images. Selected and arranged by Goude himself, they present a gallery of artworks that have redefined advertising and brand photography as we know them.The book includes contributions by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Edgar Morin, Eric Troncy, George Lois, and Jérôme Sans.
