Zeng Fanzhi: Catalogue Raisonné Volume I is a landmark publication systematically incorporating records from the studio, dealers, auction houses, museums, collectors, and any other possible sources to compile by far the most comprehensive record of the artist’s oeuvre. This catalog illustrates chronologically every confirmed work, inclusive of all media by the artist, with a time span from the 1980s to 2015. For each singular work, there is comprehensive information including detailed descriptions, inscriptions, provenance, background, preparatory studies, documentary photographs, literature, and exhibition records, as well as any associated primary archival documents that have never been published ever before.
The most comprehensive catalogue of the artist’s work.
Zeng Fanzhi is one of the most controversial living Chinese contemporary artist. He won his international acclaims first by Hospital and Meat Series and later on the Mask Series already in the 1990s.

Following major exhibitions at Gagosian Hong Kong (2011) and Gagosian London (2012), in November-December 2015 paintings, sculpture, and works on paper by Zeng Fanzhi were on show at the Gagosian gallery in New York.
