Item #29841 Design Assemblies. Manuel Essman.

Design Assemblies

New York: Willard Gallery, 1941. 8vo, single sheet folded once, with a photographic reproduction tipped onto cover, and an additional, smaller plate tipped-in within. With a foreward by the artist.

An early catalog from Marian Williard's groundbreaking gallery in its second iteration, when it was located next to Curt Valentin's Bucholz Gallery on 57th St. The exhibition was devoted to Manuel Essman's Design Assemblies, sculptures that are "tectonic, built, constructed, assembled and formed as is a machine, a house or a stage set," and includes a checklist as well as the two reproductions.
