FRAENKEL GALLERY/EDITIONS ANTOINE DE BEAUPRé

Art & Vinyl

Edited by Jeffrey Fraenkel, Antoine de Beaupré.

Art & Vinyl

Art for music: the album cover as medium

Art & Vinyl is an exhilarating new look into the history of the vinyl record as a medium for modern and contemporary visual art. This beautifully designed and printed publication is the first book to focus in-depth on works of art created specifically for an album, composer or musician.

With reproductions of more than 200 LPs from the mid-20th century to the present, Art & Vinyl traces the trajectory of how the record album has been considered by artists as material for a work of art. The book begins with Pablo Picasso’s 1949 depiction of the dove of peace, printed directly on an audio disc. Significantly, the recording was Paul Robeson’s Chante Pour La Paix (Singing for Peace). Art & Vinyl also includes works by artists as disparate and wide-ranging as Ed Ruscha, Marlene Dumas, Cy Twombly, Yoko Ono, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Barbara Kruger, Robert Rauschenberg, Sol LeWitt, Sophie Calle and Andy Warhol.

Highlights include Gerhard Richter’s extraordinary oil painting made directly on a recording of Glenn Gould’s Bach: The Goldberg Variations (1984), as well as Allan Kaprow’s LP How to Make a Happening (1966). Also featured are albums of original recordings by Joseph Beuys, Yves Klein, Jean Dubuffet, Christian Marclay and Wolfgang Tillmans, among others. Some of the better-known artists' covers for rock, pop and jazz albums featured here are Jann Haworth and Peter Blake's Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band; Jim Dine's cover for The Best of Cream; Lee Friedlander's portrait of Miles Davis for In a Silent Way; Warhol's cover for Sticky Fingers and Robert Frank's Exile on Main Street; Mapplethorpe's classic Patti Smith portrait for Horses; Robert Longo's cover for Glenn Branca's The Ascension; Fischli/Weiss's Liliput; and Alec Soth's cover for Dolorean's The Unfazed.

Art & Vinyl has been assembled over the course of nearly a decade by curator and collector Antoine de Beaupré, author of Total Records and founder of Librarie Galerie 213 in Paris.


Keith Haring's album art for Malcolm McLaren & The World's Famous Supreme Team Show is reproduced from 'Art & Vinyl.'

Remember records?

Remember records?

"Remember records?" Antoine de Beaupré and Jeffrey Frankel ask in their new, 470-page survey of contemporary artworks created specifically for vinyl records and record covers. Well you will. This amazing linen-bound volume reproduces more than 200 super-rare first editions from de Beaupré's collection. "Our album of albums begins in 1949 with a drawing by Picasso printed directly on the surface of Paul Robeson's "Songs of Peace," and ends with an image of a taxidermied menagerie by Sophie Calle," de Beaupré and Frankel write. "In between are supreme outliers like Richard Hamilton, whose indelible un-artwork forever defined the Beatles' white album; Christian Marclay, whose non-sleeve allows his record without a cover to accumulate a lifetime of scratches; and Gerhard Richter, whose oil painting directly on the surface of Glenn Gould's revered "Goldberg Variations" leaves Bach's composition see-able but forever unplayable." Robert Frank, Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, and so many others are included herein. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Featured here is Robert Longo's cover for Glenn Branca's "The Ascension," 1981. continue to blog

Art & Vinyl: the rarest, purest and most ambitious specimens of their kind

Art & Vinyl: the rarest, purest and most ambitious specimens of their kind

You probably know that Andy Warhol designed the vinyl and cover art for "The Velvet Underground and Nico," that Robert Frank produced the art for the Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street," or that Raymond Pettibon designed Black Flag's "Jealous Again." But did you know that Robert Rauschenberg created the packaging for the Talking Heads' "Speaking in Tongues," or that Lee Friedlander shot the cover of Miles Davis' "In a Silent Way?" Fraenkel Gallery's Art & Vinyl is both a revelation and a pleasure. Yves Klein, Josef Albers, Richard Avedon, Lawrence Weiner, Marlene Dumas, Kiki Smith, Christopher Wool and Tauba Auerback are just a few of the artists featured in this 470-page compendium of "the rarest, purest, and most ambitious specimens of their kind." Featured here is Barbara Kruger's cover for Consolidated's "Business of Punishment" (1994). continue to blog
