Artist in Focus: Richard Blow
Wright was pleased to present From Medici to Montici: Richard Blow and the Modern Pietre Dure, an auction dedicated to the American artist who single-handedly revitalized the antiquated technique of pietre dure. To celebrate the extraordinary collection and unprecedented sale, we published a full-color catalog featuring an essay by Glenn Adamson using primary research conducted by Adam Edelsberg and conversations with Bruno Lastrucci and Eileen McKiernan—the most comprehensive and scholarly text on the artist to be produced to date!
