Published by Walther König, Köln. Introduction and with text by Pablo Bronstein.
Gilded Keyholes presents 30 eccentric ink drawings for keyhole escutcheons done in a variety of styles, by Argentine artist Pablo Bronstein (born 1977). It is a follow-up to Bronstein’s previous book of doorway designs, Ornamental Design for the Framing of Doors.
Taking the form of an eighteenth century plate-book, this witty artist's book proposes 83 new designs for door frames. Printed in sepia, the sometimes impractical, outrageous or tasteful designs cover many epochs and motifs--from Gothic to Postmodern, Chinoise to Turkish--but always from the same perspective.
Mimicking an architectural almanac of the nineteenth century, artist Pablo Bronstein presents the Postmodern architecture of London. Each building is described by a drawing and text by the artist. The book is based on the guided bus tours Bronstein conducted as an official project for the visitors of the 2006 Frieze Art Fair.
