Annie Leibovitz
ARNOLD Schwarzenegger. Sigined Annie Leibovitz ChromaLuxe Aluminum Print & Book

2023

About the Item

He’s a four-time Mr. Universe, seven-time Mr. Olympia. His films have grossed four billion dollars worldwide. He won the California governor’s race by a landslide. He has one of the most recognizable faces in the world, an oft-imitated accent, and a physique still heralded as the most perfect ever built. He’s Arnold, the one and only, with first name recognition worldwide, and now with an Art Edition equal to his impressive size and unabashed ego. A decade of collaboration in the making, this photo tribute covers 75 years of Schwarzenegger, from the future Terminator’s impoverished childhood in Thal, Austria, to his rise as a young athlete, his journey to America to become the most celebrated bodybuilder of all time, to his career as the world’s leading action film star, then into the California governor’s mansion and beyond. Along the journey, Arnold’s muscular body, chiseled features, and charismatic personality made him a favorite subject of photographers, including Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Robert Mapplethorpe, Herb Ritts, Francesco Scavullo, and Andy Warhol. The big book includes them all, while the smaller companion volume gives you more intimate images, and exclusive interviews with Arnold and directors Ivan Reitman and Bob Rafelson, and top bodybuilding legends. The Art Edition comes with a nearly life-size print of Arnold on the ski slopes by Annie Leibovitz for the June 1997 cover of Vanity Fair, signed by Annie. Printed directly on aluminum, the vibrancy of this extraordinary reproduction puts the viewer right on the slopes with him. In addition, the Art Edition includes a unique book stand – a 1:2 scale reproduction of the iconic Capitello chair, famously created by Studio65 in 1971 and produced by Gufram. Its pop subversion of the classic Greek ionic capital and column is a fitting homage to the Greek ideal embodied by Arnold’s famous physique. Art Edition (No. 1–100), book numbered and signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, with a framed ChromaLuxe print, numbered and signed by Annie Leibovitz, and a Capitello book stand designed by Studio65. Dye sublimation print on ChromaLuxe aluminum panel with floating frame, ready to hang, 122 x 172 cm (48 x 67.7 in.); Hardcover with ChromaLuxe aluminum print cover, 34.3 x 46.2 cm (13.5 x 18.2 in.), 7.69 kg, 334 pages, in slipcase, plus companion volume, 556 pages, on a Capitello book stand designed by Studio 65 in hand-finished soft polyurethane coated with Guflac®️ Ultra, produced by Gufram. ARNOLD is limited to 1,947 copies, each numbered and signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger: Art Edition (No. 1–100), with a ChromaLuxe print, numbered and signed by Annie Leibovitz, and a capitello book stand designed by Studio65. Capitello Edition (No. 101–950), with a Capitello book stand designed by Studio65. Collector’s Edition (No. 951–1,947), with the book in a slipcase and the accompanying companion volume.

  • David Byrne, Los Angeles, 1986 Signed, Framed, ChromaLuxe aluminium Print
    By Annie Leibovitz
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    Art Edition “David Byrne” (No. 1–275). Hardcover volume in a slipcase, accompanied by the portrait David Byrne, Los Angeles, 1986. For over 50 years, Annie Leibovitz has been creating a body of work that is unequaled in breadth and influence. From the viscerally immediate reportage made for Rolling Stone magazine in the 1970s and extending through the more stylized portraiture of her work for Vanity Fair and Vogue, her pictures make up what is essentially a family album of our time. In 2014, in close collaboration with Annie, TASCHEN published a SUMO edition of her work: over 200 photographs, many of them famous (the naked John Lennon entwined in a last embrace with Yoko Ono, Patti Smith on fire) and some rarely, if ever, seen before. In 2022, to accommodate a wider audience, this volume was recreated as an unlimited XXL edition. The XXL volume is now available as an Art Edition in four different versions, each accompanied by a signed, numbered and framed dye-sublimation ChromaLuxe aluminum print. David Byrne, Los Angeles, 1986 is included in an edition of 275 copies. In 1986, David Byrne wrote, directed and starred in his only feature film, True Stories. It was a quirky view of life in small-town rural Texas. Several of his collaborators on the project were from the downtown New York performing-arts world. Music was an integral element in the film and much of it was supplied by Byrne’s band, the Talking Heads...

  • Whoopi Goldberg, California, 1984 Signed, Framed, ChromaLuxe aluminium Print
    By Annie Leibovitz
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    Art Edition “Whoopi Goldberg” (No. 1–450). Hardcover volume in a slipcase, accompanied by the portrait Whoopi Goldberg, Berkeley, California, 1984. For over 50 years, Annie Leibovitz has been creating a body of work that is unequaled in breadth and influence. From the viscerally immediate reportage made for Rolling Stone magazine in the 1970s and extending through the more stylized portraiture of her work for Vanity Fair and Vogue, her pictures make up what is essentially a family album of our time. In 2014, in close collaboration with Annie, TASCHEN published a SUMO edition of her work: over 200 photographs, many of them famous (the naked John Lennon entwined in a last embrace with Yoko Ono, Patti Smith on fire) and some rarely, if ever, seen before. In 2022, to accommodate a wider audience, this volume was recreated as an unlimited XXL edition. The XXL volume is now available as an Art Edition in four different versions, each accompanied by a signed, numbered and framed dye-sublimation ChromaLuxe aluminum print. Whoopi Goldberg, Berkeley, California, 1984 is included in an edition of 450 copies. Annie’s most well-known portraits are based on ideas that come from studying the subject’s work. “It didn’t have to be a big idea,” Annie says. “It could be simple. There’s a case to be made that the simpler idea the better.” The Whoopi Goldberg portrait is based on a character in Whoopi’s one-woman show, which in early 1984 was playing at a small downtown club in New York. The character is a little African-American girl...
