Title:   A. G. Rizzoli: Architect of Magnificent Visions

Binding:   Hardcover

ISBN Number:   0810942933 / 9780810942936

Seller ID:   08203

Published to accompany a two-year traveling exhibition opening in March 1997 at the San Diego Museum of Art, this is the first book devoted to visionary American artist A. G. Rizzoli (1896-1981). The recent discovery of his elaborate architectural drawings, which have been described as "the find of the century", has belatedly brought Rizzoli the recognition he yearned for during his lifetime. He has been compared to Escher, Piranesi, and Blake, and his art has become avidly sought after.

For nearly 40, years, Rizzoli worked as a draftsman for a San Francisco architect. In the evenings, he made the exquisite color ink drawings of his dream city and other visions that are reproduced here. Skyscrapers, Gothic cathedrals, the Duomo in Milan -- reconfigured and often lit Hollywood-style with floodlights -- were intended as architectural stand-ins for people known to the artist.
